Brown tourism signs pointing to the popular haven for wildlife have been given the go ahead by the county council and Highways Agency.

The centre, which opened in April 2011, has become one of Preston’s go-to attractions for families, wildlife enthusiasts and schools.

The Wildlife Trust centre upon opening was due to be added to the brown signs, which show motorists where tourist attractions are, but the Highways Agency was unable to sign off in time.

Now Lancashire County Council has agreed to add the signs to the M6 junction with the A59 at Samlesbury.

The work to add the signs if £25,000 and is fully funded by Brockholes, it’s due to commence immediately.

County councillor Tim Ashton who is responsible for the county’s roads signed off the signage plans in late March.
