  • Learn About Lytham
    Lytham town lies in the south west of the Fylde area of Lancashire on the estuary of the River Ribble. The history of Lytham goes back for 1000 years with evidence in the Domesday Book (1086). Originally a rural community, relatively poor and backward for centuries, the Fylde was a ‘wetland’ which people were glad to avoid.
