Bolton: From Victorian School to Mega Mosque
Muslims in Bolton have resubmitted plans to knock down a historic school building and build a Mega Mosque in its place.
The Islamic community who are currently using a Victorian school building as a Mosque plan to tear the building down and replace it with minarets and a large dome.
The final details of the development, which involves knocking down the current building in Great Lever to make way for a new three-storey structure, were revealed in January 2020.
Makkah Mosque in Grecian Crescent will be completely rebuilt to meet the "growing" needs of the community.
The custom-built facility will have a new prayer hall, ablutions, community rooms and funeral services with a mezzanine, plant rooms and a roof garden on the top floor.
