Discover Preston Gallery
From 1 February 2016

On display for the first time, following essential conservation, is this Preston Corporation Lamplighters' Banner. Carried in the 1902 Preston Guild, it shows an elaborately painted gas lamp in the centre. Preston was the first provincial town to be lit by gas and 2016 marks the 200th anniversary of this milestone in the city's history.
