Milltown Mischief


True Tales of Daring & Adventure in Victorian Bolton

Join dreamy, bookish Allen – destined to become one of Lancashire’s most celebrated dialect poets (and to write down these true tales) – and his unlikely friend, the rough-and-tough Midge, as they paint a lively and poignant, knee-high picture of a world that no longer exists.

‘A unique and vivid insight into the Bolton of 150 years ago’


Growing up in Victorian Bolton was definitely not easy for Allen and Midge, what with dangerous millwork, hunger, and their shoeless feet always cold. But these two young milltown lads were determined to have as much fun as they could. Their escapades make for tremendously entertaining reading, but while we can laugh at some of their daring adventures, we have to remember that this is not fiction – these boys were real, and all that is described here is true.
