Preston

Tony Worrall Foto - View my 'The Classic Preston Postcard Set' set on Flickriver Preston is beautiful ancient English town (city since 2002) which has both of old and futuristic buildings. The city on at least on 1/3 of its territory covered with parks and golf courses and has a marina. River Ribble crosses Preston’s centre. On Ribble banks, close to a nearby Ribchester, once stood an important Roman fort Bremetennacum.

The name Preston comes from ‘priest town’, and there is a saying that “Preston has a church for every day in a year”. Indeed, although many ones were destroyed Preston still hosts an impressive collection of church buildings.
