As you are aware Cuadrilla has started construction work at the Preston New Road site.
We currently have a presence at the site between 9.00 am and 3.30 pm each weekday and 9.00 am. We will only engage in peaceful and legal actions.
This is going to be a lengthy campaign and we need boots on the ground. Please do come along and give your support even if it’s just for half an hour. A Facebook page has been created to keep you up-to-date with events.
The number 61 bus from Preston/Blackpool travels along Preston New Road. The bus stops near Maple Farm- marked bus on right of map. Walk towards Ma Bakers Cafe/Waterworld – it’s only a short walk to the site from there. If you’re coming by car (PR4 3PE) you should be able to park at Maple Farm or Waterworld/Ma Baker’s. Please remember that these are business; please treat them with consideration and respect. Please also note that parking is not allowed anywhere on Preston New Road.
If coming by train you need to get off at Kirkham. The Blackpool South and most of the Blackpool North trains (check before boarding) from Preston stop at Kirkham. From Blackpool all trains to Preston stop at Kirkham. From Kirkham Station catch the 61 bus (Blackpool) and follow the instructions above.
