1hr from Preston / Poulton le Fylde
17 minutes by train and 30 minutes by car from Preston. The small town of Poulton Le Fylde near Blackpool. A growing centre with a lot of restaurants and cafes. St Chad's is the main church and a nice feature, with crocus display in early spring. The Market Square has traditional stocks and fish slab.
In 2015 Booths are opening a large new store and the car parks have been re-modelled.
In early 2017 the rail service will be electrified. There are non-stop train to Preston and direct services to Manchester, it's Airport and York.
