Fleetwood and Thornton Cleveleys are well known for their proximity to the coast. Developed during the Victorian era, Fleetwood retains a lot of this style, with remnants of its once vibrant life as a deep-sea fishing port. As a popular resort, today it acts as a quiet contrast to busier nearby towns, and is home to the Mount, a 7-acre park offering views across Morcambe Bay. Thornton Cleveleys, like Fleetwood, is also a prominent seaside town. The wonderful promenade, the Jubilee Gardens and the relaxing boating lake are just a few of the attractions this picturesque area has to offer, aside from the peaceful estuary and the historic Marsh Mill. Lancashire enthusiast Peter Byrom delves into the history of these areas, through a collection of remarkable old and new photographs.
