This building is not in Preston, but in Chorley.

Hi there eskdaleman.

You are absolutely right to point out that this building appears to be inncorrectly named; however, this temple is where people attached to the Mormon Faith go to worship from across the UK and for some historical significance and reasons known to them, they like to refer to it as the Preston Temple even though it's miles away in Chorley. They have a similar building down in East Grinstead, Surrey, which they call the London Temple.

So there you have it. I agree with you that it doesn't seem correct, but if I alter it's title, I'll have 13,000,000 Mormons telling me I'm wrong.

Thanks for your visit.

Rob.

PS I'll alter it slightly so as no others think I've lost the plot.
