The spacious town centre is dominated by a magnificent Victorian Gothic town hall, which is fronted by the broad esplanade with beautiful gardens and parkland to the front, side and rear. The medieval Church of St Chad is only a short distance away as is Touchstones, a vibrant new arts and heritage centre. The centre of the town is only 10 minutes from the M62.
