People with a head for heights can climb to the top of St. Walburge's!

One of the best landmarks of Preston, St. Walburge's Church Spire, will be open to the general public.

On Saturday 15 January and Saturday 22 January, visitors will be able to ascend the 309 foot (94 metres) high spire. It is the third tallest spire in the United Kingdom, and is the tallest on a parish church.

On a clear night visitors will have an excellent view of Preston, and the surrounding countryside as far as Blackpool. The tower contains a single bell of 31 cwt (1.5 tonnes) cast by Mears and Stainbank of Whitechapel which is the heaviest swinging bell in Lancashire.

The times of access are 7:30pm - 8:30pm and E-tickets are £10. Online booking is required to assist in the maintenance of this magnificent structure.

After the ascent visitors will be invited to enjoy refreshments such as mince pie and mulled wine.
