Garstang Road Stories

Apr 17, 2018, 04:48 PM

Garstang Road Stories is a series of four 1:1 conversations with business owners at four key points along a 2.7 mile stretch of the Garstang Road in Preston, UK.

These conversations are part of a mapping of the Garstang Road, which we have bused, walked, photographed and in parts audio recorded to reveal some of the social, cultural and spatial delights that are to be found along this key road through Preston. These participating voices helped give us a more intimate insight into this busy road.

The voices in this recording include:

Sheldon Ward from We Love Hair, 26 Garstang Road

Nicola Dickinson from Flame Urban Spa, 109 Garstang Road

Thomas Finch from Springfield Manor Gardens, 228 Garstang Road

Etty Crescenti from Slice of Sicily, 333 Garstang Road

This research has been commissioned by In Certain Places, a research project based in the city of Preston examining how artists can contribute to the development of the city.

These conversations are an accompaniment to a research document called Learning from Preston.
