  • Parish Church of St Peter, Bolton

Other Information

  • The Parish Church of St Peter is believed to be built on a site of ancient worship that boasted a church since Saxon times.
  • The existing building was constructed in the 1860s to replace a dilapidated and run down 14th century church, and act as a symbol of wealth for Bolton. The original tenor bell from 1699 was retained and still hangs in the bell tower today.
  • As with Paley and Austin's Church of All Souls, the architects attempted to create a large unobstructed internal space for worship. As a result there are no pews.
  • The layout of the church features a four stage tower set to the north of the nave, creating a strong western front.
