Preston Vocational Centre PR1 1PX
Traversing the mighty A6, as it passes through Preston and on up along St Pauls Road.
You’re in for a big surprise, for on the wall of the Vocational Centre is a splendid display of tiles.
Fiercely geometric, featuring strong linking lines and dynamic dotty dots, softened by a delicate hand-drawn woven mesh.
The varied and distinctive palette set against a pale mid-grey ground.
Well worth the walk even on the rainiest of days in early May.
Reminiscent of the Carter’s Tiles adorning Castle House stairwells in Sheffield.
But actually manufactured by Pilkington’s.
