Newport Street Arcade view west December 2002
This will take you to the Octagon Theatre, and also on to the Ashburner Street
This is the old view prior to the refurbishment.
Go south down Newport Street
This will take you to Great Moor Street (Water Place or Bradshawgate), or over
to Trinity Street and the bus - rail interchange.
These elephants are at the southern end of Newport Street, and around Bolton,
there are many references to elephants.
The elephants were removed for a short while and have been replaced and
repaired and are very bright looking! (The reason only two are shown is
that the third had an unsightly hole in it).

This is all three elephants in the same location. This is a recent picture.
Not really sure of the meaning of the colours.
Nonetheless they are very nice.
And very pleased to see then back in their original place.
