Preston, a city nestled atop the north bank of the River Ribble, has many things going for it. It’s a city, for a start, which was a surprise to your scribe if I’m honest – I would’ve badged it as a bit of an aspirational town. There’s a surprisingly large and unexpectedly opulent train station thanks to its history as a Victorian industrial hub. There’s a football team. It boasts a surprisingly varied array of former inhabitants – according to Wikipedia these include, (in decreasing order of ‘fancy that’) Benjamin Franklin (yes, that one), Stu Bennett from the WWE and the bloke who plays the saxophone in Simply Red.
