Murti Pratishtha Ceremony
On 23 April, 1984 His Divine Holiness Pramukh Swami Maharaj performed the murti-pratishtha ceremony at the Shri Swaminarayan Mandir in Preston. Prior to the consecration rituals, on 22 April 2003, a grand procession (nagaryatra) of decorative floats with the murtis of Shri Akshar Purushottam Maharaj, Shri Radha Krishna Dev and Guru Parampara was carried out on the streets of Preston.

The BAPS satsang mandal in Preston commenced in 1974. Initially, the weekly satsang assembly was conducted in the homes of devotees. About 80 devotees attended on a regular basis. During festivals the attendance increased to 200 devotees and well-wishers. Then with the increase in attendance a synagogue was purchased in 1982 and renovated into a mandir. In 1984 Swamishri consecrated the murtis of deities and inaugurated Shri Swaminarayan Mandir, hari mandir, in Preston. Ever since the weekly satsang assembly and festivals are performed in the mandir.
