With twelve published books under his belt, David Hindle has proved he is a well seasoned author of local and natural history. His latest book, Victorian Preston, takes the reader on a journey of how the Victorians used the types of transport available in Preston to travel to the destination of their favourite entertainment venues. This book affords a marvellous description of the various forms of entertainment available for the leisure hungry Victorians and many of the wonderful buildings that were existent in that period.

The book of almost 200 pages is a true insight into the lives of the Victorian people living in the booming industrial and entertainment filled town of Preston. With a keenly written text accompanied by a large catalogue of related images, this is a book that all enthusiasts of Preston’s history will not be able to put down so easily without wanting to read on and continue the journey.

David Hindle’s book ‘Victorian Preston’ is available at all good bookstores, the Preston Visitor Information Centre in the Guild Hall and Amazon on-line.
