Winmarleigh is a village and civil parish of the Borough of Wyre in Lancashire, England. The population taken at the 2011 census was 272. The village, which is north-west of Garstang, has an agricultural college, and the Duchy of Lancaster has an estate here. This includes the local pub, the Patten Arms. It is home to the great manor of Winmarleigh Hall. Constructed to the order of the Duchy of Lancaster, it was given to the first Lord Winmarleigh. Since then the house has been donated to NST Travel Group, who have turned the grounds into an outdoor education programme for schools across the country.
The school and school house, which date from 1870, were designed by Lancaster architects Paley and Austin.
In March 2011, ten estate farms were offered to the tenant farmers for purchase as a part of a Duchy re-balancing asset plan to reduce its rural assets. Six of the farms were close to closing by June 2012 to their tenant farmers while New Hall Farm's tenant wished to retire. Also a portion of the estate was transferred to the Village Hall Committee as it adjacent to the Hall and is used for recreation.
