    Decent spots to stay in the van near Preston?

    I'm on a 4 day course soon in Preston and don't fancy the 2 hr commute from home. Any recs for somewhere to stay in the van - campsites, pubs with overnight parking? I've seen the lay-by stopovers and dodgy car parks on the usual apps. Would rather go legit for peace of mind.

    Loud metal to metal noise.
