Freckleton Memorial Play Park Opening

Freckleton Memorial Play Park Opening Ceremony & Fun Day
Saturday 1st October 11am to 3pm

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 Library is to close - 09.09.16
Freckleton Library is going to be closed. Lytham survives but Kirkham doesn't in it's current location. Kirkham library is to be replaced by a 'collection/dropoff shop' of some sort. The Fylde has been politically st*ffed as predicted. Draw your own map of Lancashires political boundaries by seeing what has been axed and what has been 'saved'! Independence for Fylde anyone?

Freckleton library books destroyed - 21.08.16
It was reported on the news this week that Lancashire County Council (LCC) have removed and destroyed the books which were donated to the people of Freckleton following the Air Disaster in 1944. These books, whilst kept in the village library, did not belong to LCC and the LCC had no right to remove and destroy them.

Update - 09.09.16 - Lower Lane has already been closed. Is LCC premature or trying to avoiding an overrun?
Update - 24.09.16 - Lower Lane is open again but it has only been resurfaced halfway along!
