PRESTON. A Day out On The Bus.

The Iconic Preston Bus Station, transport brutalism.

The weather is still stuck in “Unfriendly” mode but sitting in looking out at the world outside is not one of my favourite ways to pass the time so it was on with the big coat and out on the bus to Preston. It’s not a long journey but daylight is still switching itself off not much after five PM so I would still get the best of the day. There’s a couple of places on my “Eat cake, drink coffee, watch people” list so I checked out a couple of them. An added bonus was the Makers Market being held in the Square in front of the Harris Museum ( currently closed for renovation, check website for details etc, a link will be a t the bottom.

A quick visit to the Market Hall, a chance to warm up slightly.
A bit of shopping for the weekend.

Daylight never rose much above unenthusiastic, and the temperatures meant that moving briskly was a good idea, so it was a shortish visit. That said, I was out of the house for a few hours, a bit of advance practise for when things are a bit less Arctic and I may or may not have has a Brownie from the Makers Market.

The Makers Market in full swing on an almost bright February Saturday.
Food to go Lancashire style, a little something to keep the cold out.

Some Links.
