The Bolton Turkish Baths, Great Moor Street

Lettering in stone

The Richmond Terrace baths in Blackburn (Fig 13.17) and those at Great Moor Street in Bolton (Fig 13.18), both designed by architects Stones & Gradwell, are considered to be in the Queen Anne style. Of these, only the Bolton building survives, with its strong stonework indication of purpose outside,

and a few remaining vestiges of ‘Saracenic’ design inside. It has since been used for a variety of purposes, including a police station.
