Go Bus: Glancey in Preston

Today’s Guardian arts supplement includes a Jonathan Glancey tribute to Preston Bus Station. Much too late to have any effect we fear. According to a recent item in the Lancashire Evening Post the building will be ‘half-demolished’ while a new station is built in an equally inconvenient place. Given Preston’s ability to wilfully destroy historic fabric we have visions of the town in 2020 with a half-demolished, empty bus station structure occupying one corner of a still undeveloped city centre site.
