At the beginning of the 18th century, Preston was noted both as a pretty town and as a place where many gentries resided. Three hundred years later, this "pretty town" has grown, being granted city status in 2002, coinciding with the Queen's Golden Jubilee. Preston has a history of weaving going back to the 13th century. It became a boomtown during the industrial revolution when entrepreneurs, such as Preston-born Richard Arkwright, introduced extensive mechanisation to fabric production. Although this and many other heavy industries have since declined and disappeared, Preston has carried on to become a major center for innovation and new business start-ups. With excellent communication links and friendly people, Preston has been voted the best place to live in the north-west. Although the gentry may now be rather more thin on the ground, with so much to see and do, Preston certainly still has much of which to be proud.
