I was born and grew up there - couldn't wait to leave. Though have family back there and like it a lot more now. People are genuinely friendly and nice. Prefer Blackpool though.urban poll relflects the wishes of the people of Preston - 80% in favour of keeping it apparently -
I think it is a distinctive building - but have never been to Preston, and I'm unlikely to go, unless I meet and fall in love with someone from Preston and get divorced and move up there to be with her
It is indeed and there is a secret railway tunnel under the town - which I explored many a time as a callow yooth.Preston train station is quite nice too.
I'm not going to say I like it because I'm just not a fan of brutalism. That being said I'm glad it still exists and is being looked after, stuff like this is an important part or our architectural history.
An old friend of mine; born, bred and still based in Preston has been taking photos in the town forever. He's very happy with the station - less so with some bollard madness in town that I can't quite figure out.
