Fleetwood Early Years

‘Fleetwood’s Early Years’ celebrates various contemporary artworks depicting the development of a seaside resort and a port at Sir Peter Hesketh Fleetwood’s new town-FLEETWOOD-on-WYRE.

Some of the paintings on display are by well-known artists, such as G.W. Herdman, Sir George Hayter and Frances English. The exhibition also includes many contemporary photographs (copy prints for sale), memories and other literature – an exciting glimpse of life in Fleetwood’s early years.
