Coffee & Carols

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.

News

Graveyard safety - 05.11.16
Holy Trinity Church are required to make sure that the headstones in the graveyard remain safe. Maintenance of gravestones is primarily the responsibility of the deceased's family, but where family cannot be traced, responsibility for any injury could rest with the church. We have recently checked the headstones in the graveyard and have attached notices to hose we consider could be a danger to visitors due to loose mountings, disintegrating mortar, etc. If you are a relative of those buried in graves identified in this way, please take steps to make them safe; otherwise, we have no alternative but to lay them flat. If you have any queries, please contact the Churchwardens.

Family tree research - John Robert Clarkson (Blacksmith)
Neil has been researching his family tree and he had an ancestor who was a Blacksmith in Freckleton from the 1880's until his death in 1920. His name was John Robert Clarkson and thanks to Peter Shakeshaft, Neil managed to find out he was employed as a Blacksmith on Grange Farm on Freckleton Marsh. He lived about 100 yards from the entrance to the road to the Farm on Old Preston Road. Grange Farm had over 500 acres, 34 horses and 20 colts hence why a Blacksmith was needed.
Does anybody have any old photographs of Freckleton Marsh, Grange Farm or a Blacksmith from the early 1900's that may have the ancestor on it or the place where he worked?
