About this section

Come and take a look at notable structures in Cleveleys, past and present!

The Cleveleys and Thornton area has a long and varied past - and some of the buildings are still standing to prove it.

From the historic and listed Marsh Mill windmill, to the clock shelter at the end of Victoria Road West there are still old and historic buildings to be found in these parts.

Some are more what you'd call a landmark or edifice, not really a building at all - like the Jubilee monument in Jubilee Gardens.

Bit by bit we'll take a look at, in and around these structures and create an online resource of photos, memories and information for everyone to share and enjoy.
