  • The Innovation trail aims to create a new outdoor museum based on the history and culture of the city of Preston. The circular walk will lead visitors past a series of modern and informative displays.

    Often referred to as the ‘father of the Industrial Revolution’. Sir Richard Arkwright helped to vastly increase cotton production in mills and factories across the world through his invention of the Spinning Wheel, or Water Frame.

    At the home where he came up with his invention, a metal pathway telling his story is to be installed, leading up to the front door.
