A ‘house of terror’ attraction in Penwortham has been recognised as one of the best in the UK.


Run by the Walton family the charity Halloween event has become a cult event in Preston.

More than 3,000 visited during Halloween last year as the family put the horror house, in Howick Park Avenue, on for three nights.

They entered the 2017 Scarecon Scar awards and scooped the UK’s best home/charity haunt.
