A new series of tours up Preston’s tallest spire has been extended due to popular demand.Advertisement
After Blog Preston wrote about the St Walburge’s spire tours, the grade-I listed church was overwhelmed by popularity, running out of tour guides and tickets.
The tours up the 94-metre-high spire, which is the tallest of any parish church in England, will continue at 7.30pm every Saturday up to and including 23 February. The tours are followed by refreshments in the church porch.
Booking is not required, but payment on the door is £8.50 to help with the maintenance of the iconic Weston Street church.
