All Souls is a nationally important piece of architecture which is almost perfectly preserved. The Church was established at the heart of Bolton’s Crompton community in 1881 by the Greenhalgh brothers. It is a unique Grade II* listed Gothic Revival building designed by Paley and Austin.
The inside of the church had originally been designed to provide an unobstructed view to 800 people. As a result it boasts a huge space unobstructed by pillars or aisles. This made it uniquely adaptable to its new purpose as an events and community space.
The philosophy of the restoration is to preserve the original beauty of the church while incorporating the very best of contemporary design.
We created two “pods” of modern design which provide office and conference space in a new and visually striking way. The newly designed spaces provide:
two meeting rooms
a conference room
a media suite
an events space in the main body of the church
and a ground floor cafe.
