Also of interest is a view of Vicars Bridge and the east Lancashire railway line just before it was closed and lifted. The parking area seen at lower left was once occupied by the horse stables for the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway that serviced Butler Street goods yards. In his new book "The Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway Around Preston" the Author, Bob Gregson, provides a detailed account of their day to day operation.
