Poppy Seeds

A campaign has been started by Freckleton in Bloom to plant real poppies to coincide with the centenary of World War 1.

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.
