|Tree lined avenue taking you into Preston|
I apologise to those of you out there who have always loved and appreciated Preston, but up until today I thought it was another sad relic of the 1960s overdevelopment that utterly destroyed the character of so many market towns. I'd only really been into the centre for shopping and the odd music or theatre trip. Skirting around the outside gives a whole different view of the place.
|Preston Docklands - Looks as good as any city I've ever been to. Who would have thought?|
We started and finished at Brockholes which is a recently created wetlands reserve right next to the M6 Motorway but at the same time feels a million miles away from anywhere. I saw a black swan on the lake there. There was also a food and craft fair going on so got some yummy plum jam while I was there.

Who knew? Preston is a city of character and charm!
