Winckley Square is in the heart of the city of Preston, a short stroll from Fishergate. It is unique and one of the finest examples of a Georgian square in the North West with a compelling history.
This website aims to take you on a journey in time and place and to share with you the Square’s heritage, keep you up-to-date with events and invite you to engage with us to enjoy and preserve the Gardens for future generations.
Meet some of the former residents: the wealthy lawyers and cotton manufacturers, the sometimes invisible ‘extraordinary women’ and the unsung servants on whom the owners depended.
