Prescot THI - Eccleston Street
Prescot is one of the most historic towns in Merseyside. The five year Townscape Heritage Initiative Scheme will see the repair, restoration and re-use of historic buildings and spaces in Prescot town centre.
Quadriga completed work on buildings 19, 54 and 56 Eccleston St. The work involved restoration of historic architectural features to include Victorian shopfronts.
Work started at 19 Eccleston St, a nineteenth century building occupied by Andrew Louis Estate Agents, in late 2015. The building, which was once home to watchmakers Joseph Preston and Sons, has been the source of some historical excitement with the uncovering of an old shop sign. Works included:
Removal and replacement of the roof
Installation of rainwater goods
Restoration of windows and doors
Repair of masonry
Replacement and redecoration of shopfront in the traditional way
The work was followed by the repair and restoration of 54 and 55 Eccleston Street, currently occupied by Ade UK and Max Speilman.
The project drew on the diverse heritage of Prescot to help shape the town's future. It was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, Knowsley Council and other local partners.
