Preston Lockwood (born Reginald Herbert Lockwood, 30 October 1912 – 24 April 1996) was an English actor.[3]

He is best known for his television credits, including the role of Butterfield the butler in several episodes of Jeeves and Wooster. He also appeared in the first episode of The Vicar of Dibley as Reverend Pottle, whose death mid-way through the prayers served as the catalyst for Geraldine Granger's arrival.

Other appearances include Poldark, Shoestring, Doctor Who (in the serial Snakedance as Dojjen), Tenko, Miss Marple, All Creatures Great and Small and Inspector Morse. His performances on BBC Radio include Dennis the Dachsund in Children's Hour Toytown.
