Virtual Walk - Nelson Square
The flower gardens in Nelson Square were laid out in 1893.
There is a war memorial here and a statue of Samuel Crompton.
This statue was erected by public subscription in 1862, paid for by
millworkers in recognition of his services both to the town and to the
industry. Behind the statue is Provincial House, home to an insurance company.
There are some old pictures of the original
Provincial House in pictures of old Bolton.
Bradshawgate runs along the eastern edge of the square. On the left is the bar
area of the Pack Horse Hotel.
