St Peter's Church, Bolton

This 19th century church has a 1980’s community hall at the rear linked to the church by two corridors, one large, one small. More recently, these links had deteriorated and become unsafe and had to be boarded up. The church planned a £320k transformation that included upgrading the two links, and Valencia Communities Fund was approached to fund £100k towards the new corridors that would provide direct level access to the annexe building without going through the church.  

The completed works provide level access to the community hall, with a good-sized entrance lobby and connection doors to hall and church, meaning that people with additional mobility needs can access the hall unhindered.
