Rather interesting Bolton facts
Did you know that with 260,000 people Bolton is the largest town in Britain? Slightly larger than the smallest city, you’ll agree: St Davids in Wales has fewer than 2000 residents. Boltonians tried to win city status in 1992 for the 40th anniversary of the Queen ’s accession; in 2000 to mark the Millennium; and in 2002 for the Diamond Jubilee (when to rub salt in the wounds Lancastrian rival Preston was given the honour).
