Kirkham, Lancashire

There's lots to see and do in Lancashire. A hot air balloon flight may be perfect for a birthday gift or special celebration.

The ancient market town of Kirkham is set in a farming environment in the Fylde to the south-east of Blackpool and north-west of Preston. The town is believed to be pre-Roman as the settlement called ‘Setantu’ and was also temporarily occupied by the Romans on their way to Ribchester. The foundations of the main road through Kirkham are believed to be the Roman Road. It became a ‘Free borough’ by Royal Charter in 1296 entitling it to hold a market and 5 day fair twice a year. The semi-circular stone otherwise named the ‘Fish-Stones’(slab tables from 1683) from which fish used to be sold can still be seen at the market place. During the medieval period people used to make rope, linen and a rather course kind of cloth from home grown flax and hemp.

The Kirkham & Wesham Railway station on the Blackpool / Lytham St.Annes line from Preston is on the road into Kirkham (B5192). The picturesque village of Wrea Green is situated to the south-west and the village of Newton-with-Scales to the south-east of Kirkham.
