March 2017

Bolton FM launched in June 2009, and is 25 watts, the usual power awarded to most community stations. Coverage is limited to Bolton itself, due to the fact that there are other stations in the North West around 96.5 MHz, and the transmitter site isn't that high (100 m ASL with the antenna 50 m above ground).

The building is Albion Mill No. 4. According to Chris Allen on Geograph, Albion Mills 1 to 4 were built between 1850 and 1870 as cotton spinning mills. Mills 1 to 3 were demolished in the 1970s. Mill No. 4 ceased work as a textile mill in 1958 but is still in multiple uses, including for self storage.
