Short history of Civic Pride in Preston
The aim of this website is to round up the well known and best loved buildings of Preston and tell you something about their history and life.

The Buildings in the city centre sprang from a great sense of civic pride and wealth from the cotton industry in the 19th century. The wealthy manufacturers and merchants wanted to show the success of the town off and wanted to provide a free public library.
The collection of buildings featured on the site is not exhaustive but does provide you with an insight into the splendid civic buildings of the city of Preston.
