Wagon Works (now Standfast & Barracks), Caton Road, Lancaster
Nearly 500 people took the opportunity to look beyond the rather forbidding stone walls of the old Wagon Works on Caton Road, now the premises of Standfast & Barracks, high-quality textile printers.
The Society is very grateful to Standfast & Barracks for opening the site and allowing visitors to see some of the historic areas and some of the modern processes which take place there today.
Many Standfast staff were on hand to answer visitor questions and the firm also generously provided refreshments, raising £160 for SPAB (The Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings) in the process.
We are very grateful to all the Standfast & Barracks staff who gave so generously of their time. Thanks also go to Roger Frankland (Joint Chairman of the Society) for his work in organising the event and to those members of the Society who help to steward the event.
