The Rise and Decline of the South Fylde Ports

Abstract The paper attempts to identify the natural and man-made features that have impacted the use and decline of ports at Fairhaven, Lytham and Freckleton. Looking at each port in turn, the history and factors influencing their decline have been examined, based on documentary evidence, published text, personal knowledge and familiarity with the area. It presents the conclusion that the inevitable silting up of the Ribble estuary brought about change affecting development of the entire area.
