Mr Robin Miller, the great-great grandson of cotton manufacturer Thomas Miller, plants a winter-flowering cherry tree in Winckley Square.
Mr Thomas Miller, lived at No 5 Winckley Square, a house he built for himself in 1857. Mr Robin Miller hopes that the house will one day be open for the people of the town to admire.
On his second visit to Preston, Robin Miller said: "I came here once and fell in love with the place. I hope one day that the house on Winckley Square will be restored and the people of the town will be able to go in and see how my family lived".
