One of Garstang’s historic buildings in the heart of town was reduced to rubble this week to make way for a new retail and home development.

Work is now underway to transform the 18th century Old Stables off the back of King’s Arms, High Street, into two retails units and first floor luxury apartments.

The controversial plans, lodged in 2010, had been heavily opposed by Garstang Town Council and heritage campaigners, who had wanted the derelict barn to be given ‘listed building’ status.
