*UPDATE* FARNWORTH market is set to be demolished — angering traders who have worked there all their lives.
The market site will be redeveloped into a new retail area and traders will be given a new site with so-called “demountable stalls” — temporary stalls which can be put up and down, rather than the current fixed stalls.
Bolton Council and regeneration experts St Modwen have been working on the Farnworth masterplan for months and say the development could create more than 100 jobs.
