Bolton is a large and magnificent town built on the north-west of England in the Manchester country. Note the city is the administrative center of the Bolton region. Another large city, Manchester, is located for far away from Bolton.
Initially this city was built in the second part of the 19th century. At that time the city was a district. In 1644 the territory of the modern Bolton was used as a battlefield during the Civil War.
We should definitely mention the fact that this city has its own parliament. This made Bolton less popular at one time, because the city was located in the royalist region.
When the parliament was yet about to be created, Rupert Pfalcskiy tried to seize the city. At that time took place one of the scariest facts in the history of the city – the Bolton Massacre, during which were killed over 1600 people. During the time of the World War II Bolton was turned into a large center of the textile industry.
