The Derby connection with Preston has been handed down the
generations by the names of some of our inns. There has been
a Derby Arms in the town since about 1790 (probably when it
took the name away from the "COCK AND BOTTLE".

After the Derby Arms, Back Lane, closed down, the Joiners'
Arms, which stood in Lord Street on the other side of Lancaster
Road (where the Guild Hall now stands) was renamed
the "Derby Arms."  Both the premises were owned by
the Derby family.
