It's a CCT Church so yes, it is looked after. It's by local architects Paley 
& Austin - who produced a number of fine churches in the north. The Saviour, 
Bolton, was another of theirs - from pictures it was very similar to All 
Souls: it was demolished several decades ago and the bells now form the back 
eight of the twelve in Bolton.

There have been a number of rings of bells lost in Bolton in the C20 - Holy 
Trinity's eight are now the back eight at Preston; St George's bells (also 
eight) are now at Wangaratta Cathedral in Australia.

Does anyone know anything about the six from St Bartholomew? I believe they 
were scrapped.
