The first two buildings to be demolished in 1814/5 were situated across what is now Bolton St between Smithy St and the Market Place. The removal of these buildings allowed this section of Bolton St to be built. Prior to this, this section of the main road, originally a toll or turnpike road, ran approximately along Central St.
