A giant crane has gone into position to lift up materials needed for the rooftop function space of the venue.

A spokesman told Blog Preston: “The crane has been moved into position to lift materials into position and the steel work which will form an extension of the rooftop function space.

“The hotel will open in June so we are not far away, work is progressing and we are really excited to get this hotel open and give the people of Preston an amazing building and experience with the Shankly and Finney names attached to it.”
