Houghton Street to be pedestrialised

Work is very soon to begin on the pedestrianisation of Houghton Street. Lots of planning and consultation has taken place with the Parish Council, Civic Society, etc., to make the most out of this rare opportunity to change significantly an area in the centre of the Village.

With the 175th Anniversary of the Rainhill Trials in September this year, there was an overwhelming desire to incorporate some artwork and design that reflected the Trials. We will be posting more photos to reflect the changes.

Village Refurbishments finally started

We have been pressing for Village improvements for many many months and St Helens Council have finally begun the work. You will know that a temporary one-way system is in place now to allow the work to be carried out with the least amount of disturbance to both motorised traffic and to pedestrians. The system is expected to be in place for about six weeks.
