Thursday, 27th November in the Village Hall
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.
