HORWICH LOCO WORKS PROPOSED DEMOLITION
As you can see from the map, you can see the extent of the demolition of the Loco Works. (highlighted in PINK).
However, those parts that are being proposed to be kept (highlighted GREY) haven’t any cast iron guarantees to save them. If we do not do anything, the developers will have their way and wipe away the heritage core of what made Horwich.
Remember a flattened site has more value to the developers which means 100’s more extra home on top of the 1700 already earmarked!
So if you can, get in touch with Horwich Heritage and give them your support in any way you can. They are so far the only ones who are campaigning to save your heritage. Sadly they are a single voice against the might of the developers and Bolton Council.
