We start with a visit to the Hall I' th' Wood, a Grade 1, 16th century half-timbered hall that is one of the north-west’s most important buildings. It contains displays of 17th and early 18th century furniture, objects and artefacts, learn more about the life and work of Samuel Crompton and discover all about life in Stuart and Tudor times. The rooms have been accurately refurbished to retain their homely atmosphere. Hall i’ th’ Wood Museum started life as a rich merchant’s home during the mid-17th century. Years later the building was split into several rented dwellings and, whilst living in one of these with his family, Samuel Crompton famously invented the Spinning Mule in 1779. The mule went on to be one of the most significant spinning machines used by the textile industry. The house and grounds were presented to the people of Bolton in memory of Samuel Crompton and opened to the public as a museum in 1902.

Lunchtime is spent in Bolton Town Centre where the Museum and Art Gallery houses a fine art collection of over 3500 items. Nearly all of these are works by British artists dating from the 18th century to the present day, plus local history, Ethnography, Egyptology and Geology collections.

After lunch we visit Turton Tower, a house that has been evolving over the last 500 years. From a stone tower house in the 1400s, to the home of the Tudor Orrell and, later, the Victorian Kay Families, Turton Tower has been altered and adapted to suit the needs and tastes of those who lived here.
