The Historic Society of Lancashire & Cheshire has a vast archive of articles dating back to its foundation in 1848, many of great value to students of Preston history. Simply putting ‘Preston’ into the search box on the society’s website yields more than 500 articles relating to the history of the town. Top of the list of results is Michael Mullett’s superb article on divided loyalties in Preston from the Restoration to the Glorious Revolution. His article and four more from the first page of search results have been added to the Preston History Library with the permission of the present editor, Dr Bertie Dockerill, to give a flavour of what can be found on the society’s site.
