I'm intrigued by the reference to there having been a chain ferry across the ribble at Freckleton. I grew up in Frecklton and took an interest in local history and can recall no othere reference such a ferry.

I can't think of any point where a road approaches the river that would have been used as an approach to such a ferry.

Downstream of Freckleton Naze there used to be a pub (accessed from Warton) called Guides House named after the guides who would lead foot traffic across the sands. the pub was open into the 1930's (my mother recalls it as a small girl) but closed when Warton aerodrome was built during the war.

History section[edit]

This section is written in a very muddled style. In a number of places it is impossible to be sure what is meant. The section needs rewriting by somebody with a good knowledge of the subject. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 146.198.85.216 (talk) 15:28, 21 August 2016 (UTC)
