A lost shopping centre just minutes away from Greater Manchester was loved by generations of adults and kids.

Botany Bay was a huge shopping and leisure complex in Chorley, Lancashire, and had everything you could imagine, even a massive play area for children. Based in a former mill alongside the Leeds Liverpool Canal, it was simple to get to from Greater Manchester located just off the M61

All that's necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing

Dont think so Parky,it's a mill at the side of M61 as you head back to M/c.
Been in a couple of times.
Politicians and nappies must be changed often,and for the same reason
