Long Preston Archive
Robert Slater was born in Long Preston and spent all his life in the village. He maintained an active interest in every aspect of village life and, over the years, collected vast amounts of information relating to a wide variety of topics. After his death in 2015 his family wanted his work to remain in Long Preston and to be available to all. The Long Preston Heritage Group is pleased to have the chance to make The Robert Slater Collection available on line through the Capturing the Past project. In due course other, unrelated, and recently acquired archive items will be added to this site.
The attention of users is drawn to the fact that the LPHG has a “dormant website” containing large amounts of information acquired before 2015. This can be accessed by using the link below.
