Spinning Point – Rawtenstall


This project involved relocating the existing Bus Station in Rawtenstall Town Centre and refurbishing part of the former Rawtenstall Town Hall to provide office accommodation. The scope of works also included demolishing several existing buildings including the former Police Station and RBC One-Stop Shop and constructing a new Bus Station with associated public realm space and infrastructure works including alterations to the existing road network.

In 2014, DAY Architectural was appointed to develop proposals for the for the redevelopment of the former Valley Centre, which was demolished in 2012, and the adjacent Town Hall and Police Station sites which would include a new bus station. Initial plans involving complete demolition of the former Town Hall were unpopular and revised plans that retained part of the Town Hall and contained a scaled back bus station were submitted in 2015. The new bus station opened in late 2019, replacing the bus station on Bacup Road that was built in 1971.

This £15m project concluded in 2023 when the final tenants took tenancy of their commercial units within Rawtenstall Bus Station. The fit out of Posh Living and Pizzaman’s was funded through Lancashire County Council’s ‘Lancashire Economic Recovery Gran
