Long Preston Heritage Group News

Long Preston Heritage Group is assisting North Craven Heritage Group to update its 50 year old photographic record of buildings in Long Preston.

This will be undertaken over the next few months, so if you see some residents photographing buildings, please do not be alarmed.

We will be trying to take the photographs from the same position as the original ones so the changes can be seen.

Also we will be doing new (extra) photographs as a record so the next generation will be able to see the changes.

Hopefully, together with the NCHT, we will be able to have an exhibition of the photos in 2022.

We will provide updates as the project progresses.

If you would like more information, please contact: secretary@longprestonheritage.org.uk

LPHG are looking for new volunteers.

We depend on volunteers to keep the Group active. We need people to get involved and this can be as much or as little as you like. You may want to just help but we also need people confident about leading projects as well as committee members. Are you interested? The amount of time or work you can give would be up to you. If you are interested, please contact me at  secretary@longprestonheritage.org.uk to discuss how you can become involved without any commitment on your part.

The Village has a number of regular activities which are listed on the Village part of this website.

The Heritage Group has 2 ongoing projects  -  an archiving project and the St Mary’s project. Full details of these can be found under ‘Current projects’.

The Heritage Group has had several intensive years since its start in 2007 researching the history of the village, improving amenities and areas of the village and hosting social events.   Over this time it has become an established village community group.

We do not charge for membership.

We are always open to new ideas and suggestions.
If you want to join the Heritage Group, please contact the secretary.  You can just be a member or you can give as much of your time or expertise as you wish. We are an entirely voluntary group.

LPHG has recently become a member of the ‘Friends of the Dales’.  This is the new (2017) name of the Yorkshire Dales Society - a registered charity set up in 1981 to campaign for the protection and enhancement of the Dales and to encourage everyone to value and enjoy this special area.  This organisation can be accessed here: https://www.friendsofthedales.org.uk.
