Geoffs Life After Work !

Life is just beginning

Trip into Fleetwood (next door to Blackpool)

Today we took atrip on a Blackpool bus & travelled the 8 miles to an old fishing town Fleetwood. It was once the trawler town on the North West & in  days gone by my younger brother Brian & me used to catch a train (steam/coal) every Sunday for 6pence return !! Sadly the railway has long gone & the old station demolished ! The ferry across the River Wyre is due to be discontinued (to Knott End) In Knott End we used to collect Perriwinkles of the rocks once the tide had gone out & our mother would duly boil & eat them !! Fleetwood now is a tired old place and on the verge of being abandoned it is also the home of the Fishermans Friend who no doubt a few off you out there have sucked on !!!
