Irwell vale's main street dating into the 1800's, was named in honour of John Bowker, with it's neighbour Milne Street commemorating the fact that his daughter married the Rev. Nathaniel Milne, rector of Radcliffe. Number 12 Bowker Street was the first meeting place of the methodists in the village. They held Sunday services and a Sunday school here for 20 years using planks laid on stones taken out of the river for seats. Between 1880 and 1938 number 26 Bowker street was home of the Irwell vale working mens club and reading room. For a modest subscription of half a crown, members could read a selection of newspapers, buy minerals, herb beer, tobacco and cigars at concessionary prices, and play billiards or dominoes.
