On the north bank of the River Ribble lies the city of Preston, the administrative centre of Lancashire. Despite being granted city status relatively recently in 2002, it has had a long and interesting past as a historic market town. Local author, Keith Johnson, guides the reader through its streets and shows how Preston's famous landmarks and hidden gems have transformed over time. With the help of a handy location map, readers are invited on this tour to discover for themselves the changing face of Preston.
