Paul Thompson, managing director of auction house Pugh, which is handling the sale, said: “This is a magnificent building dating back to the start of Queen Victoria’s reign when Preston was a proud railway town and textile manufacturing was becoming dominant.

“It would be tremendous to see it take on a new lease of life and, in a fantastic location, close to the main transport corridors and just a couple of miles from Preston city centre, Larches House represents a great investment opportunity.”
