About Moor Park Conservation Area

Moor Park is of national importance as a designated heritage asset. It is included in the register of Historic Parks and Gardens and is Grade II. It provides evidence of the work of Edward Milner, and the desire of the city council to provide parkland for the people.

The built environment demonstrates waves of development; from the spacious villas of the upper classes lining Garstang Road to the terraced houses built for the working class of the time. The area shows the relation between the built environment and its links with open space and demonstrates an aspect of Preston's industrial background The area contains buildings that are both listed and of local interest, for their architectural and historical quality.
