The latest issue of the Preston Magazine is packed with more great nostalgia features about the city.


Including the continuation of David Huggonson’s look back at who the Preston Pals, young men who fought in the First World War, were and their stories.

Plus there’s a look from Peter Vickers about the history of Goosnargh and some of the quirkier goings-on in the quiet village just outside the city – but was it always so quiet?

The Preston Magazine is produced by Penwortham resident Heather Crook and has celebrated its first year of operation.
