Inskip is a small village in the Fylde area of Lancashire, England. It is part of the civil parish of Inskip-with-Sowerby. The village is close to the former RNAS Inskip airfield, which still serves the armed forces as a tri-service communication centre.
It is home to one of the Sea Cadet Corps training centres.
Whilst the village has a Preston postcode, it is regarded by some to be closer to Blackpool than in fact Preston.
The location is served by the Preston Bus bus company with the 80 service. The bus runs from Preston bus station to Myerscough College every two hours. The service was operated by the Stagecoach in Preston. This service is primarily frequented by students of Cardinal Newman College from Inskip and its surrounding areas as a means to and from college.
Inskip was listed in the Domesday Book of 1086 as Inscip. Its area was estimated in that survey to be two carucates of land. From 1281, the village was owned by Richard Butler of Rawcliffe Hall. He received it from William de Carleton as a dowry of his bride, Alice.
Inskip's church is dedicated to St Peter. It was built in 1848 and was financed by the Earl of Derby and Archdeacon Hornby. It is recorded in the National Heritage List for England as a designated Grade II listed building.
