The former Four Gates School

A new meeting hall for a spiritual organisation is to open on the site of the former Four Gates School on the A6.

The new building is currently being constructed for the spiritual group Radha Soami Satsang Beas which provides a “process of inner development under the guidance of a spiritual teacher” – and is said to be “based on the spiritual teachings of all religions”.

A planning application to demolish the school and build the new centre was submitted in 2012 but it is only in the last few weeks that the site has been cleared.

Westhoughton councillor David Wilkinson said: “It was sad to see the old Four Gates school being demolished as I went to it as a young boy and it was great school.”
