Time Running Out for Preston Bus Station

Preston Bus Station, icon of Brutalist architecture and the favourite building of the people of Preston. It is slated for demolition, as it doesn’t do the job required. Which is a real shame; it is full of wonders, large and small. More appreciation here.

  1. “It is slated for demolition, as it doesn’t do the job required.” More accurately it’s threatened with demolition in order to sell off some prime land to developers for a new retail area. It’s in a terrible state at the moment, but that’s due to wilful neglect by its council owners. Fingers crossed that the newly elected council leaders will have the ambition to integrate this instantly recognisable building and vital public facility into any redevelopment of that area of the city – something similar to this would be great.
