About the village

The parish church, All Saints Church, stands in the heart of the village. It is a twelfth century church with later additions,[2] notably a gabled 18th century south porch. It underwent a Victorian restoration in 1848. Today the church is grade II listed.[3]

Bolton has a pub, the Eden Vale Inn, and two schools.
