Preston pubs mapThe number of pubs is rapidly in decline in Preston and thanks to data found via the Preston Lancs forum I’ve been mapping Preston’s pubs.


The majority of them on this map are closed down but some are still going. Now I need your help to improve it and increase the list, apparently there were up to 350 pubs in Preston at one point during the 1900s.

The map is powered by a spreadsheet which you can edit.

The map itself is editable and you can drag and drop pubs if they are in the wrong location. I don’t have postcodes for them so it’s done by street name and number, so there are bound to be inaccuracies.

I’d also like to get photos of all these pubs. Some might be long gone but the ones that are still standing, get your camera out and get snapping. If you do have any photos please send them to


Let’s piece together Preston’s drinking past!
