The Bolton News: Howell Croft North, Bolton

The town hall standing in the background gives you a clue as to the location. You are looking at Howell Croft North which had been earmarked as a clearance area for new retail development.

We wonder if any Looking Back readers remember Betty’s Sweet Store which you can see here on the corner of Howell’s Yard? Chances are it was hugely popular with youngsters, who doesn’t love a sweet shop?

If you remember Betty’s do get in touch. Email or leave a comment.
