Whatever happened to the old fish stones on the Flag Market?Advertisement
Just one of the questions pondered in this month’s Preston Magazine which takes a look back at Preston’s history.
The local nostalgia magazine goes to hundreds of people in the city every month and is run by Penwortham resident Heather Crook.
In it there is a lookback at the old Market Square in 1850 and what happened to the old fish stones where traders would lay out their fish for the day.
A more morbid piece of nostalgia is looking at the uncovering of skeletons and ancient tombstones in the area around St Walburge’s Church ion Maudlands in 1854.
There is also the publication of a poem called The Fool by Robert W Service who hailed from Preston.
