WELCOME TO

POULTON-LE-FYLDE HISTORICAL &  CIVIC SOCIETY    

 

founded in 1981 by Rev David Wiseman, minister of Poulton United Reformed Church

The site is intended to give visitors a  flavour of the town and its past, present and future.  We welcome contributions from all those with an interest in the history of Poulton-le-Fylde and its surrounding communities.

 

The first mention of a church in Poulton is in a document of 1094 but there could well have been a church here in Anglo Saxon times.    The church is dedicated to St Chad, an Anglo Saxon bishop who died in 627 AD.
