The Decline of
Bolton Hall

Step Back in Time

The Decline: Welcome

After the First World War the Hall became too expensive to run. So unfortunately this bizarre, historic place was demolished in the 1950's.

Some declared that it was sacrilege. Others said it was the only option. In the late 1950’s one of the oldest gentleman’s houses in England was demolished. Had it been restored and standing today, it would arguably have been one of the nation’s premier heritage attractions.

The Hall, however, was riddled with dry rot and permission to pull it down was given in 1958.
