Bridge Street

Named as the River Croal passes beneath, as it does most of Bolton. The river has not recently been visible from Bridge Street, but since the demolition of a supermarket, it now can be seen from the top of the Market Place car park. This has now been replaced with a retain and entertainment complex.

Note the red post box. This is the oldest post box in Bolton, sited here in May 1990 marking 150 years of the British Post Office. It was originally sited in Waterloo Street. Just behind this postbox is a small rockery. On the wall either side of the entrance are several plaques detailing the building and rebuilding history. Over the top of the door is the old coat of arms of Bolton, you should just be able to make out an elephant over the crest if you download and enlarge the JPEG.
