Bolton's rivers are steeped in history, heritage and nature.
Unfortunately due to a small minority of mindless individuals, they have also become a dumping ground for litter and fly-tipping.
We would like give Bolton's rivers back to nature. The River Croal is a 10 mile stretch of water running through the middle of Bolton, starting at Middle brook and running eastwards through the town centre, eventually running into the river Irwell in Kearsley. It's name originates from "Croh" and "Wella" meaning winding stream. Along the way it is joined by The River Tonge, Bradshaw Brook, Astley Brook and Eagley Brook.
Wouldn't it be great to allow all of Bolton's waterways to return to winding streams, instead of an environment to dispose of one's rubbish?
