Museum used to be at Preston but its moved to Manchester now.

Shame about the museum moving...I might have made the effort to go otherwise.

It's an interesting fact that the first length of motorway built in  Britain, was the Preston by-pass in 1958. It became incorporated into the M6. It's a bit strange being able to remember the country before motorways, and in the case of the M4 remember seeing it built.

If I had a time machine, then I'd rather have seen Avebury and Stonehenge being built.

How long is the flight? Sounds like a plan

Hour or so, hopefully will be quite a few town fans on the Friday flight.

The fact that it was a two lane motorway.

I think a motorway is defined by statute.  It's to do with which vehicles are permitted to use it (ie not bicycles & pedestrians) more than whether it has a central reservation etc.

Not that you would doubt Reg on anything like this, but this site does back him up.

Edit:  The same site provides the answer to NBR's question.
