STALLHOLDERS fear for their future — with work to demolish Farnworth Market set to begin by the end of this month.
In line with planning regulations, Bolton Council has given notice that it intends to demolish the canopy next to King Street between Monday, October 28, and Friday, November 22.
Trading will continue during the works — with businesses moved to the other two canopies.
The demolition is part of plans to develop new retail units on the site of the market.
But Steve Rawcliffe, aged 45, from Leyland, who has owned a fruit and vegetable stall in the market for 30 years, is worried the development could spell the end for his business.
