Great place to drive by and enjoy the view - often see this place as we leave Blackpool and must one day investigate more as we know the Lytham windmill well

Just a windmill really. Literally as soon as you exit the motorway. Easy to find. Easy to access. Not always open

I always used to remember this Windmill from Caravaning at the nearby Marton Mere Holiday Park as a young un! Not worth going out of your way to see but maybe Like me if seen it brings back some nostalgia!

I love windmills and there should be more of them around. We stopped near by to take a photo. There should be some on the sea front. Better location.

There were of course very many more around the Fylde, as evidenced by our heritage displays inside Little Marton. If you didn't come in for a look around then I hope you will next time you pass on an open day.
