24 picturesque shots showing Preston's historic Moor Park in all its glory through the years

Moor Park on Blackpool Road is Preston’s largest and oldest park.

It was originally common land derived from the Royal Forest of Fulwood by the Charter of Henry III in 1235. Formally known as Preston Moor the park has been at the centre of many of the town’s historic and memorable events for hundreds of years. These archive pictures were all taken in more recent times, with a smattering of older pictures thrown in to show the real history of the open space. Many Preston residents will have memories of Moor Park and we hope we’ve brought some of them back with these photos. READ MORE: Wander through Preston’s Avenham and Miller Parks.
