Prescot in 2015: Review of the Year

It’s been a monumental year for Prescot, and Owen Barton of the Prescot Townscape Heritage Initiative has done a splendid job of summing up all the year’s achievements.

We’ve seen new businesses come to the town centre, from The Dance Shop and the irresistibly delicious Albion Bakehouse and the stylish restaurant 18 High Street to the toe-tappingly fantastic Dance Shop and an array of other small shops.

We’ve seen a hit production of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, at a time when plans for an Elizabethan theatre and centre of Shakespearean studies in Prescot come ever nearer to fruition.
