2:00 pm till 3:30 pm | Meet Centre of Winckley Square Gardens Winckley Square , Winckley Square, Preston, England PR1 3JJ

Join Steve Harrison on this guided walk and explore Churchgate and Fishergate; where Preston’s rich and powerful families lived until factory building in the late C18th. Subsequently the west end of the town was shaped by local oligarchs. Private and public buildings were erected. Did the powerful create a world just for themselves or was philanthropy a key motive? Walk starts in the centre of Winckley Square Gardens.
