Winckley Square, Covered Market and Harris Museum

Several interesting projects are moving ahead in Preston as reported only 2 months ago and now we have 3 more with progress to report.

Work has started to restore Winckley Square which will have as its main feature a lit walkway from the Peel Statue to a central area and then straight across to the other side. Barton Grange, known best for their top quality garden centre, are doing the work.

Also the council approved the covered market proposal which will create an indoor market inside the larger canopy and a market made of containers under the smaller one.   As the canopies are listed buildings and their full extent is one of their major features care is being taken to ensure they can be appreciated, we hope.

Also Hemingway Design have been been appointed to interpret the public interface of the Harris Museum, Library and Art Gallery along with Purcell to be architects.  It will be interesting to discover what is being proposed.
