Long Preston is a village in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. 

It is located 4 miles south of Settle and has a population of approximately 750.
The village is sited on the main A65 road and has a station on the Leeds to Carlisle railway line.
The local heritage group has found evidence of occupation dating back 8000 years to the Stone (Mesolithic) Age. 

Surviving croft lands surrounding the village can be traced back to Domesday.

to the south are the wetlands of the Ribble Valley which, in turn, sweep upward to the magnificent wilderness of Bowland.
