‘Amazing, unmissable opportunity’ arises for Leyland’s Worden Hall

An exciting, one-time investment prospect in Leyland has been declared “an amazing and unmissable opportunity” to become involved in one of South Ribble’s most illustrious historical icons.

Worden Hall, beautifully set in the heart of Worden Park in Leyland, will be the subject of a new council consultation, seeking views and interest from businesses and investors.

It is hoped that the Grade II listed building, deep into the grounds of this 150-acre, award-wining park, will attract considerable attention in the property and business world.

Councillor Colin Clark, Cabinet Member for Corporate Support and Assets at South Ribble Borough Council, said: “This is an amazing and unmissable opportunity for businesses and investors to get involved in one of the North West’s most popular, well-run parks.

“Worden Park, every year, receives more than 300,000 visitors and boasts many attractions such as the maze, the miniature railway, the arts and crafts centre and the café – not to mention the children’s play area and all the green open space for sports and recreation.

“With all of this in mind, we feel that Worden Hall has massive potential as the focal point within the park, so we are interested in hearing from businesses to see what they could offer and how they imagine transforming the Hall for best future uses.

“It’s time we brought Worden Hall back into the limelight to celebrate and utilise this amazing landmark.”
