About Bolton

Bolton is a sizable town in Greater Manchester in Northwest England, originally a part of Lancashire. Since Flemish weavers arrived in the area in the 14th century and established a wool and cotton weaving tradition, Bolton has been a major textile industry hub. Textile production came to the city at the same time as its urbanization and development, during the Industrial Revolution. At its peak in 1929, Bolton was one of the greatest and most prolific centres of cotton spinning in the world, with 216 cotton mills and 26 bleaching and dyeing works. After WWI, the British cotton industry suffered a severe downturn, and by the 1980s, cotton production in Bolton had all but disappeared.

Bolton is located 16 kilometers (10 miles) north-west of Manchester, in between the cities of Manchester, Darwen, Blackburn, Chorley, Bury, and Salford. It is also close to the West Pennine Moors. Bolton is the administrative hub of the Metropolitan Borough of Bolton, which consists of various smaller towns and villages surrounding Bolton. Bolton proper has a population of 139,403, and the metropolitan borough has a total of 262,400 residents. Formerly a little town in the middle of the moors, Bolton was once called Bolton le Moors. Being a stronghold for Parliamentarians in an area that was strongly Royalist, the town was attacked by 3,000 Royalist troops led by Prince Rupert of the Rhine in 1644 during the English Civil War.
