Developers on swanky new apartments in Preston city centre have now put their own logo up on the ‘Booths bridge’.

The iconic clock remains and has been lovingly restored by TSS Developments.

City Bridge apartments have now been completed in what used to be the former Booths store, cafe and headquarters just off Fishergate.

A spokesman for TSS said: “The Booths sign was taken down by Booths as they no longer needed it or owned the building.

“We wanted to keep this iconic piece of history on the bridge and the clock, as one of the focal points of our development.

“It needed a lot of TLC so we have revamped the inside and outside and used it to put our signage on.

“We have had amazing feedback from the general public passing by and how much they love the new sign which is great to hear.

“We’ve been hailed one of the most luxurious developments in Preston city centre and nothing like this exists in and around Preston.”
