There are also several beautiful parks, nature reserves and other green spaces dotted throughout the city centre.
Preston Tradition & History
The place name Preston derives relatively unambiguously from the Old English for ‘priest’s town’. While there is much evidence of Roman activity in the area, Preston was not founded until the Angles arrived.
Preston was a militarily strategic important site and a relatively lucrative economic centre throughout the Mediaeval and Early Modern Periods and its equidistance from London and Glasgow meant it was the site of several battles, most notably during the English Civil War and the Jacobite Uprisings. Yet despite all this, Preston remained a medium sized market town until the Industrial Revolution, when it expanded exponentially.
Preston became one of the boomtowns of the 19th century, becoming a major manufacturing centre and one of the principle cotton industry hubs in the world, the second town in the country lit by gas lighting, the cradle of Arkwright’s revolutionary invention of the water frame and the inspiration for for Coketown, the setting of Charles Dickens’ Hard Times.
