Description

Granted city status in 2002, Preston is officially England's newest city, however the area's history dates back to Roman times when travelling legions set up a camp midway along the road between Luguvalium (Carlisle) and Mamucium (Manchester). Since then a lot has changed, the area has undergone hundreds of years of development through various periods of history. You may be forgiven for thinking that Preston has little surviving evidence of its history, however the fascinating comparisons in Preston Then & Now show that a lot has remained, as well as a great deal that has changed over the years.show more
