 History Of Smithills Hall 

With over 800 years of history as a family home, Smithills Hall still retains its basic original shape and Medieval features. There are many rooms to explore including the Medieval Hall, Withdrawing Room & the Library and there is evidence that there was once a Chapel on the site too. In the 1950s human bones were discovered beneath the floor of the Withdrawing Room, believed to be built on top of the cemetery attached to the Chapel in the early Medieval period.

The house suffered neglect during the mid-17th Century but is now owned and restored by Bolton Council.

In 1801, the hall and estate were sold to the Ainsworth family, who were successful Bolton bleachers. Under three generations of Ainsworths Smithills was extensively rebuilt and modernised. In 1870 Richard Henry Ainsworth, the nephew of Peter Ainsworth (Colonel Ainsworth& son) , inherited the house. In around 1875. He employed the prominent Victorian architect George Devey in about 1875 to design the most significant improvements to Smithills Hall.

The west wing was neglected for many years, but was restored by Bolton Council in 1999. Old photographs were used to recreate the family’s living quarters as they would have looked in around 1900. However, changes in the British economy after the First World War had increased costs and reduced the amount of income the family could raise from the estate, and the financial burden of maintaining a large house eventually became too great. In 1938, Smithills was sold to Bolton Council for £70,600, and the Victorian parts of the hall became a council residential home and later a day centre until the late 1990s.

Conservation work on the older sections allowed part of the Grade 1 listed structure to be opened as a museum in 1963, and in the 1990s, the museum was extended into some of the Victorian parts of the house.
