No, I'm not making it up.


Preston bus station on UK monument 'at risk' list

Preston Bus Station has been listed as one of the world's "most treasured locations".

The "brutalist" style building, earmarked for demolition, is one of seven monuments being placed on an "at risk" list by the World Monuments Fund (WMF).


It actually looks okay in the photo on the article. If you get up close and personal you'll realise the truth.

According to Wikipedia "Some claim that it is the second largest bus station in Western Europe." (I love how no-one knows for sure.) And, apparently, "A survey conducted by the Lancashire Evening Post in May 2010 found that Preston Bus Station was Preston people's favourite building."

It's a handy car park, but it's a real pain in the arse to get in and out. And the bus station is horrendous.

Cold, dark and dank. Preston, England's newest city.

However, I do quite like Preston train station. It's a bit of a state, but the Victorian ironwork architecture is lovely.

And the girl at Caffè Ritazza is nice.

Oh wow, I love Wikipedia.

Just sayin'

Yes, Preston Station is good. There's a good wobbly bridge in Preston too.
