A steel pillar – the last of those to be winched into place – forms the outside of the new market hall.

Preston City Council is preparing to demolish the current indoor market and a new glazed structure is being built under the grade-I listed outdoor market canopy.

Last week the pillars were hoisted into position by Conlon Construction who are leading the build of the new market hall.
