Relief Carvings, Smithills Hall Withdrawing Room
The withdrawing room is panelled with relief carving made by Flemish craftsmen. The carved portraits depict generations of the Barton family and the emblems of stags’ heads and acorns below them are taken from the family’s coat of arms.
Smithills Hall
Smithills Hall is a manor house, standing on the slopes of the moors above, two miles north west of the town centre. It is one of the oldest manor houses in the north west of England; its oldest parts, including the great hall, date from the 15th century and it has been since been altered and extended particularly the west part.

The hall is owned by Bolton Metropolitan Borough Council . The oldest parts were opened to the public as a museum in 1963, and in the 1990s, the museum was extended into some of the Victorian extensions. The west wing was restored by the council in 1999. It is Grade I-listed (List Entry Number: 1388279 LinkExternal link Heritage Gateway)
