A Walk in Preston 19th January 2024 Friargate area

A January walk from Ringway to Adelphi along Friargate to look at the almost complete update of the road.  Past Roper Hall where I sat some Open University exams 50yrs ago.

Then right on Walker Street.  Right again on Patten Street to see how what was Trinity School, which was used as a Building for the Harris College when I was there but is now gone and replaced by Student rooms.

Across the Car Park towards the Playhouse Theatre and back to the Harris Museum, Flag Market, and Waterstones.

The view of Friargate from Ringway. The update not quite complete but looking good.

Off Friargate are a number of old alleyways and sett cobbled streets.  Walker’s Court sounds interesting,there is a Walker Street further down. Green door what’s that secret you’re keeping?

A car park and a shrine, to mark the site of the Church of St Mary, sits up this passageway.
