Heritage Project

In 2021, the Community Library launched its Heritage Project – WE ARE PRESTON! VOICES FROM METROLAND. The Project is looking at the history of our area, recording memories and collecting images of buildings and places that have disappeared – and looking at the green spaces that have survived. It’s amazing to think that Preston had farmland within living memory.

About the project

WE ARE PRESTON! VOICES FROM METROLAND is one of several projects in the Being Brent programme funded by the Heritage Fund. Our project includes video and audio recordings of conversations with local people, history walks and a series of public events. During the coming year, we will be adding links to recordings and a photo gallery of our activities. We would like to thank both our funders and all the people who came forward to share their memories – helping us to take a fresh look at the places we pass every day.
