BOLTON town centre has yet again been chosen as the backdrop for a high-profile TV series.

Sharp-eyed viewers saw Le Mans Crescent and the Town Hall clock in thriller Bancroft last week and there was also filming inside the central building.

We may take our local architecture for granted but we do have some magnificent buildings in the town centre. The latest TV producer involved even compared Bolton to New York and Paris!

While that may be going a bit far, it’s true that we have much to be proud of, with the town’s history evident in many handsome buildings.
