Welcome to Freckleton
The Village of Flower & Music
Freckleton is located in the Fylde, Lancashire, England, UK, just north of the river Ribble. It is one of the oldest Fylde villages. Historically, Freckleton’s main industry is agriculture but there was a time when it was a sea port with boat building and sail making.
The Freckleton web site is a showcase for the village. It provides information about local history, the shops, pubs, restaurants, council, businesses, facilities, services and amenities that are available locally.
There are also pictures from around the village as well as information about the Lancashire Coastal Way and links to everything we can find of relevance to Freckletonians.
Please use the menu at the top of the page to navigate the site.
Freckleton.org update - 01.08.15
Our regular visitors have probably noticed the changes to the site? As the first step in our update we have moved to using CSS layout rather than the out-dated table layout we have used for years. Hopefully we haven't broken too much. We have also implemented a new photo gallery system for the Club Day, Half Marathon and Fun Run pictures. There will be many more changes in the coming weeks as the site is updated. Once we have the structure of the site sorted we will be updating most of the graphics! Please let us know if the new format is causing you problems.
Club Day 2015 Pictures
Not the best or worst weather for the Club Day procession, a light breeze and intermittent drizzle. As usual, there were a few uncooperative residents who left their cars parked on the procession route. The pictures for 2015 can be found on our Club Day pages <here>.
Freckleton Half Marathon Pictures
We had a number of issues this year but will still managed to take pictures of most of the runners from both the Half Marathon and the Fun Run. Unfortunately, I failed to get back in time to catch the first half dozen or so runners so I think the first runner shown coming back was around number seven in the race (sorry). I also had to leave for the airport so if you didn't get back to the end of Green Lane before 16:30, I missed you (sorry again). The pictures can be found <here>
