Did you know there are plans to update and revive Preston Village Hall? We are currently fundraising to hit a million pound target to bring Preston and surrounding villages a brand new hall!

We are incredibly lucky to have a recently installed defib on the side of our hall. Should you ever need one (and we really hope you don't) you can access the defib to the right hand side of the entrance door.
There is so much going on at the Preston Village Hall! We are lucky to have lots of variety with groups and classes held each week! See our 'What's On' page for more
Preston is recorded in the Domesday Book as consisting of about 60 households; quite a sizeable village in relation to the population of the British Isles at the time. However archaeological digs have established the existence of Bronze Age and Iron Age settlements within the existing parish. The church of St. Mildred’s was reputably founded by Saint Mildred in 700 AD and this church still retains evidence of Saxon stonework; as does the church at Elmstone.
Preston now is a flourishing village with beautiful old houses to a new housing development with a primary school, village shop, riding school, butchers, pub, garden nursery and bistro!
