Welcome to the

Thornton Lodge

 

Near the banks of Skippool Creek in the River Wyre Estuary on the road to Thornton and the coast at Fleetwood stands a imposing pub restaurant of whitewashed walls The Thornton Lodge. At the heart of the River Wyre’s historic peninsula in the district of Thornton-Cleveleys this welcoming Lancashire inn is close to all the glitter and spectacle of Blackpool’s iconic attractions while by contrast a short drive inland leads to the Forest of Bowland’s rugged beauty an ancient landscape of wild high moors and brooding fells.The surrounding area is popular with walkers ramblers and nature lovers and steeped in history with many prehistoric finds recorded on the Fylde peninsula including the famous Carleton Elk an almost intact 12000 year old elk skeleton with hunting barbs embedded in the leg. The nearby Domesday Book listed village of Thornton is home to the landmark Marsh Mill a Grade II* listed working Tower Windmill built in 1794. Skippool itself was once a major river port trading in cargoes from Ireland Russia and the West Indies and Skippool Creek at the rear of The Thornton Lodge has long been associated with smuggling.With Blackpool and the Forest of Bowland both in easy reach of The Thornton Lodge this pleasant country pub is perfectly located on the Fylde to relax and unwind after a day spent riding the roller-coasters of Blackpool walking on the River Wyre estuary or exploring the region’s rich history. Enjoy a delicious pub meal choose a seasonal special or tuck into a fine Sunday lunch served with fine wines and cask ales.
