Harris Institute building.

Join the Friends of Winckley Square on a guided walk...

This guided walk is led by Steve Harrison, Friend of Winckley Square, and traces the transformation of West Preston; from farmland to the residential and social quarter of Preston's wealthy families.

With the west end being shaped by oligarchs, did the powerful create a world just form themselves or was philanthropy a key motive?

How to take part

The walk starts in the centre of Winckley Square Gardens. You can just turn up, though places are not guaranteed.
