Following the visit of MA Urban Design students from MMU to our fair city this week, I offer an aerial photo set of Preston in the ‘fifties (before the clearance of factories, mills and much else).

    Great pictures here.

    It is my view that Preston is an amazing example of how a once grand town, filled with excellent georgian and victorian architecture can be utterly ruined with post-war planning and development.
