A Domesday Book settlement and a medieval borough, Kirkham was for centuries the focal point of the surrounding villages. The centre of a large ecclesiastical parish of fifteen townships, a market town and, later, the railway gateway to the Fylde's coastal resorts of Blackpool, Fleetwood and Lytham, it had a position of influence beyond its own boundaries. Changes have, however, done much to reduce its position in the area and its role is now largely that of a dormitory town. This series of images inevitably concentrates on Kirkham township although there are photographs from the contiguous settlements namely Freckleton, Lund, Warton, Treales, Wesham and Wrea Green. They reveal that; while there have been changes in the townscape, much remains that would be familiar to previous generations. Kirkham & Around Through Time ends with a series of maps showing the growth of Kirkham and Wesham.
