I have seen a couple of references here to The Waterfront Pub at Preston Docks which closed 18 months ago. We (Pesto Restaurants) are having discussions about taking the site over and converting it to one of our Pesto Restaurants, our website can be seen here:
www.pestorestaurants.co.uk

Obviously that end of the dock is very sad, quiet and run down I just wondered what your thoughts might be on bringing Pesto to this location.

For us it does look rather risky, but like some of you who have commented on this forum, I believe we could really bring this end of the Dock back to life, but we would need some help and the support of the local community.

If we don't take the site, it looks destined to be an Indian restaurant.

Your thoughts on the idea would be most welcome.

I was born and bred in Preston and emigrated to Australia in 1974. I have a burning desire to return to my birthplace - Preston!

I was born in Preston and I left my home in Fulwood many years ago and took up a flying career as an Air Hostess in the 70"s. I flew for British United Airways from Gatwick and many times flew into Blackpool on the 1-11s which were on my fleet. Does anyone know me from then? Or British Island Airways from Blackpool? When I come home to Preston it is where I want to be. The people are so friendly and sincere. I will come back to my roots.

I was born and bred in Preston in 1941 in Norris St. St. Cuthberts CofE junior school, Preston Grammar School, then English Electric Aviation. Very happy memories of good friends. Now live in Lake District.

Hi Liz, the best areas are Fulwood, Penwortham, Hutton, the docklands, Walton-le-Dale or try some of the nearby villages, e.g. Longton, Goosnargh, Whittingham, Euxton

I was born and raised in Preston for 28 years till I emigrated to Perth Western Australia in 1978. I have been back "home" 4 times and seen more of Preston than I ever did when living there. I would never come back there to live, it's changed so much in 32 years but ... it's a great place for a holiday :)I am a Proud Prestonian, have stickers on my car, and will be back for Preston Guild in 2012 :)

I was born and raised in Preston but moved to San Francisco 17 years ago. I miss Preston so much.The places, the people, everything. Over the years i have brought my kids to Preston on holiday and they just love it.I also love Morrisons as well!

i am from a small town called decatur illinois in the US and i am seriously thinking about uprooting and moving to the UK for a change of life. Decatur is very small and boring. How I long for a place to raise my children that they can be proud of. Is the cost of living there more than the US?

I was brought up in Preston, and hated it when I was a kid. Moved to California 25 years ago, but still visit twice a year. Now im older, I love it. A great town, with friendly people. Amazingly beautiful country side. I particularly love the docklands, and I love Morrisons grocery store. I will always come back. :-)

I am a Preston lass born and bred but I have recently moved to Bristol to start married life here and a new job. While Bristol is a lovely city it certainly has nothing on Preston! The people of Preston are far more friendlier and sincere, I have only lived in Bristol for 3 months and want to go back to good old Preston.

I have lived in Preston since i was born (13 years ago) And i think its a great town. I always find there is something to do and i get a thrill in going into the town centre as something new is there each week!

I am Preston born and bred and having been lucky enough to travel the UK quite extensively, I would not wish to live anywhere else! If anyone can help, I am looking for photos of The Shambles, Lancaster Road, Preston. My parents had a butchers shop there, Shepherds. Thank you for any help you can give. Barbara Jones
