13th June 2021: Preston architecture, parks and Green Belt walk

Join us for a leisurely 6-mile / 9.7-km circular walk through Preston’s green spaces. This lovely circuit features Georgian architecture, one of the finest urban parks in the UK, a pretty nature reserve close to the city centre, and riverside paths by the Ribble.


The walk highlights both the value of the Green Belt around Preston, but also the threats it faces from development.

Participants will need to wear boots or good trainers and appropriate clothing (including waterproofs if necessary). Please also bring a packed lunch or a snack and a drink. We plan to break near the end of the walk for a drink and conversation at the Pavilion Café in Avenham Park.

Full details including the meeting point will be supplied to confirmed attendees prior to the walk.
