Preston is situated on the north bank of the River Ribble and it became Britain’s 50th city in 2002. The city is historically famous for its football club, Preston North End, which was the first ever team to win the English Football League in the 1888-1889 season. The city also houses three shopping centres, Fishergate Shopping Centre, St Georges Shopping Centre and the Miller Arcade, a specialist shopping centre and listed building located next to the Harris Museum. The Harris Museum itself is certainly worth a visit and its collections include fine and decorative art, costumes, textiles and a permanent exhibition on local history. Preston has much to see and enjoy, hence in the last twelve months reallymoving.com and our expert conveyancing solicitors have helped over 800 people relocate to the city.
It is thought that Preston was originally named ‘Priest Town’ and the city has a long history of Christian tradition. It is home to at least 73 places of Christian worship and St Walburges Church is particularly noticeable as its 94 mete spire is the tallest non-cathedral spire in all of England. Preston’s churches add much to the city’s feel and are enjoyable to explore. However, prospective home buyers must be wary as some Preston properties may be liable for chancel repair. This is one reason reallymoving.com strongly recommends the services of our professional conveyancing solicitors as they will be able to advise you on chancel repair liability and the other legal necessities involved in buying or selling a home.
At reallymoving.com you can compare up to four conveyancers to ensure you get the best deal. This will help streamline your move so you can begin enjoying your new home – and Preston – as soon as possible.
