Car parking at a popular garden centre between Preston and Garstang has been cut back.Advertisement
Barton Grange Garden Centre is allowed to open under the government restrictions, as garden centres have an exception, but last weekend saw police threatening to tow cars illegally parked on the A6 as the car park became full.
Garstang and Over Wyre Police posted another warning during Saturday (21 November) that anyone breaking parking restrictions would see their car towed.
A spokesperson said: “Barton Grange Garden Centre are currently working closely with Wyre Council with regard to operating within the current Covid19 guidelines and as such have reduced the amount of car parking available on their premises.
“If you intend to visit Barton Grange during the current restrictions, please be aware that you may be turned away if parking on the site has reached maximum capacity. Also be mindful of the parking restrictions that are in place around Barton Grange on the A6.
“Police are in the area to ensure that traffic can flow freely and safely and we hope that you will continue to enjoy your visit to Barton Grange.”

The garden centre is encouraging those wanting to visit to avoid their peak hours of 10.30am to 4pm, and reminded they are open until 8pm on Saturday and many evenings.
A pedestrian queuing system is in operation at Barton Grange during peak trading hours to limit the number of people within the garden centre.
