Tony Stephens suggests that the surviving Long Preston records show how the village developed from a single centre at Domesday, and concludes that the basic structure of both the Long Preston townscape and landscape has changed little between the 14th century and the present day.


We have also published a booklet by Tony Stephens

that explores in greater detail the 800 years of our history.
