Wyre Marine Services purchased The Old Victoria (also known as Barney's Bingo Hall) in August 2015. Before the building was a bingo hall, used by many in the community, it was a picture house. In the gallery below the remains of the old picture house seating can still be see.
As planning permission has now been granted, the renovation will begin on the building in summer 2017. The Old Victoria will be made into 12 x two bedroom flats and 2 x shops. During this property development W.M.S aim to preserve as much of the original architecture as possible.
