What do local people love

What people love most though about living in LA1 3 is the greenspace – although you may wonder why we are not going to cover Williamsons Park in the LA1 3 area focus? Well, that’s because interestingly Williamsons Park has an LA1 1 postcode even though it is separated from the City Centre LA1 1 postcode area!  We covered this beautiful green space in the LA1 1 area focus which you can read about and watch by clicking here - https://www.jdg.co.uk/blog-la1-1-report.html

The education provision in this area is very popular too, with the Ofsted Outstanding rated Lancaster Royal Grammar School sitting within LA1 3.

Lancaster Leisure Park, which we will cover in detail in a separate blog, is an extremely popular shopping destination in the area. Both locals and tourists alike flock for the tasty fresh produce from Countrystyle Meats farm shop and the other retail outlets on the site, for example, Lancaster Brewery and large Antique Centre. 

The long-abandoned and historic Moor Hospital site has become a focal point too, having recently had life breathed back into it through its development into luxury apartments and houses.
