about

Cotton, Culture and Characters a guided walk around Eagley and Bradshaw Brooks in Bolton, UK.

On this free self-guided walk in north Bolton, you’ll visit sites of early cotton mills, weaving sheds and bleachworks, be introduced to entrepreneurs and workers in the textile industry, but also footballers, singers, Glo-White, a psychoanalyst, fighter pilot, an actor, a DJ, a children’s writer, refugees and rogues.

The walk will take about two hours thirty minutes and is around five miles long.

We recommend downloading the audio on this page to your device before the walk rather than just streaming as, although this can be done, there are sections in valleys where you might struggle for a signal.

Similarly, download or print the map and directions before setting off.

The audio is free (click the Buy Album link above) though it does require an email address so we can keep you up to date about Live from Worktown’s arts and heritage activities in Bolton, though you can unsubscribe at any time. You can, if you wish, make a donation to the group when downloading and any money collected this way will go towards our costs of producing our various arts and heritage projects in the town. This would, of course, be very welcome and much appreciated.

Thank you for joining us on this walk and we really hope that you find it enjoyable and informative.
