The Location - Barrow Bridge is a testament to Bolton's industrial heritage, being of outstanding historical and architectural importance. This early example of an industrial model village was built in the 1800's for the mill workers and managers of the surrounding mills, it even had its own school, shops, and boating lake. The mills have long been demolished but fortunately the houses and cottages remain in this beautiful village which has a rural character with buildings clustered along the Dean Brook Valley.
It was designated as a conservation area in 1970 and the properties were listed protecting them for future generations.
