10th June 2021 and Bolton has spent the last year largely locked down, meeting only virtually through Zoom and most people were getting bored. Not so, the hardworking committee of Westhoughton Local History Group, who have been beavering away to sort and organise interesting presentations and photos from our extensive archive. We didn’t want to hide our light under a bushel, so instead, we shone it onto a new web site, so that you, your friends and the public in general could see all those interesting details of Westhoughton’s history.
And here it is; you are looking at it now!
The formal launch takes place through a Zoom presentation (what else?) on the evening of 10th June and everyone is welcome to explore what we have found so far. This is a huge work in progress and much more will be added over the coming months. Please keep watching.
