Talk by Steve Halliwell whose research on inns, taverns and beer-houses in Preston started 20 years ago.

About this event

Steve's research, started about 20 years ago, to record the life, the times and the position of all the inns, taverns and beer-houses that have represented the social life and much more in the old borough, continues to this day.

The use of a ‘blogspot’,, to tell others what he knew, attracted new information and interest from the four corners of the earth. Those with connections to Preston, or had family who originated here, have been instrumental in increasing our knowledge.

The tales which the individual establishments offer, continue to intrigue and amuse the interested observer to this day, and in this talk, Steve will relate some aspects that were not featured in his most recent book, “From Plough to Plau”, with one exception.

No doubt some of you may have your own tales to tell about some of these old haunts.
