Prescot CentreThe new Prescot Centre, combining Prescot Library, Prescot Museum and One Stop Shop, will open on Monday, 23 April.

Prescot Library, on High Street, and Prescot Museum, on Church Street, will relocate to council premises in the Prescot Shopping Centre on Eccleston Street. The building has been given a £1.2-million refurbishment to accommodate them and the One Stop Shop, which has occupied the building since the closure of the short-lived Prescot Civic Suite.

Knowsley Council argued the move would both save money and bring visitors to the struggling Prescot town centre.

The old Prescot Museum building, a three-storey Georgian town house, is on the market for £250,000.
