Hart Brewery started following a run in with Customs and Excise over the illegal brewing of beer, during which the Customs and Excise officer suggested that the beers were that good that they would sell commercially, owner John Smith decided to take redundancy from his job at the nearby British Nuclear Fuels plant. The brewery opened during 1994 under the name Hart Brewery, the brewery being located in John's garage. For a period it was planned to relocate the brewery to The Cellar Bar, Blackburn, which was finally used by Blackburn Brewery Company, but location was found in the old stables of the Cartford Hotel at Little Eccleston. The plant was relocated there and brewing restarted in July 1995. Brewing ceased there in September 2010 and restarted at Unit 5 Oxhey Industrial Estate, Greenbank Street, Preston, PR1 7PH in November 2010 and soon after adopted the name Hart of Preston. The brewery was taken over in mid-2017 following a brief period of closure and renamed in early 2018 and moved at the end of 2018.

Since the 1974 local government reorganisation there has been much controversy over many county boundaries. The links we provide cover all possibilities: Ceremonial Counties which are the areas for which a Lord-Lieutenant has been appointed, Historic Counties (and their allied county boroughs) which represent the position before the 1974 re-organisation and Local Authority which represents the third tear District level.
