Welcome to Preston in Holderness, East Yorkshire

The Preston Parish Annual Parish Meeting Is 14th May 2018 at preson Community Hall.

The Village of Preston goes back to before the Domesday Book. Being founded in Anglo Saxon times it established itself as an ecclesiastical Centre of some importance.

It is situated six miles to the East of Hull and one mile from the town of Hedon to the South. The south western Parish boundary being the the Northern bank of the River Humber from the junction with Hedon Haven and Oldfleet Drain to the West. This drain forms the boundary to the City of Hull to the West and the village of Bilton. To the North the Parish is bounded by the villages of Wyton and Sproatley while the village of Burstwick forms the Eastern boundary and Hedon and Paull to the South.

The Parish is somewhat unique in that there is not only the Village but a second settlement to the South West known as Preston South. Over the years residential developments have been such that the boundaries of both Hedon and Preston South merge at the Westlands drain.

From early times the main occupation of the area was farming and its supporting industries. However, this was eclipsed in the twentieth century by the establishment of the giant chemical works on the banks of the River Humber in the area known as Salt End. These works are mainly owned by BP Chemicals PLC, and are the largest producers of Acetic Acid in Europe.

The population of both settlements totals approximately 3,500 and  expanding as new residential areas are developed.
