How Prestonian are you?

If you can see the world from the banks of the river ribble, from hangmans wood, church woods. Make a fire in the rain, a rope swing, dam a stream, climb trees, ride a honda plop. Then you come from my world.

This quiz is purely for fun but will test your knowledge and opinions about Preston in the good old days before mobile phones. When you had to track down where your friends were on a Saturday with creative imagination.
