Preston North was a parliamentary constituency in Lancashiremarker, electing a Member of Parliament to the House of Commonsmarker until the 1983 General Election.

Parts of Preston North became elements within Fylde and Ribble Valleymarker

The modern Preston is a safe seat for Labour, but historically Preston North was one of the most marginal constituencies in the country.


The former Preston North constituency was based on the area from the western Lea and Cottam areas, which had a much lower population than at present, to the vast farming and rural communities in the northern areas around the Trough of Bowland. Over time and numerous boundary changes, the seat would stretch into and around Preston's central area, including the falling post-mills population in the centre and growing suburban families on the outskirts.Fulwoodmarker urban district, elements of which was of great wealth, forms the northern part of the modern day city of Preston.
