Around Preston: Heritage, Natural History and Walking in the City and Beautiful Countryside Beyond.

David Hindle at Waterstones in Preston today signs copies of his book Around Preston.

This beautiful book celebrates the history and beauty of the amazing countryside around Preston. Seasoned historian and naturalist David Hindle takes the reader on gentle forays into specially selected parts of our county, all easily reached from the city itself. Along the way are opportunities to see an array of interesting sights, from picturesque villages and landscapes, to birds, mammals and other wildlife. So rich and interesting is the information about the heritage and natural history of the area that this book can even be read without leaving the comfort of your home!

This would make a perfect Christmas gift.

Amongst the books that local historian, David John Hindle MA, has authored are ‘Twice Nightly: an Illustrated History of Entertainment in Preston,’ and ‘From A Gin Palace to a King’s Palace: Provincial Music Hall in Preston.’

David said that all profits from the book sales go to the RSPB
