About Preston

Historical Preston, as long ago as the Bronze Age, some one to two thousand years before Christ, scattered groups had settlements along the banks of the river Ribble in the neighbour hood of Preston.

A new chapter in local history opened when advancing Roman legions reached the Ribble at Walton-le-Dale about 150 AD. There they set up a military supplies depot and constructed a main route to the north cross and a ford in the river, and onward over the land now occupied by Moor Park. Strangely, they did not set up any settlement on the strategic hill now occupied by the town centre of Preston
