"Thornton-cleveleys" romalot's Profile

Small place on the coast

I live in the county of Lancashire in a small town called Thornton-cleveleys which is on the coast, i could walk to it from my house in about 40mins, i spend quite a lot of time there with the dogs. Thornton is more the built up part, and Cleveleys is the shops area, it really only consists of one main street, we have the old fashioned style trams that run from Fleetwood to Blackpool, Fleetwood being about 4miles one way and 6miles to Blackpool the other way.

The old style trams

These trams are one of the features of Blackpool, they get full with holiday makers going to the Tower at Blackpool and to the Market at Fleetwood, at xmas they get them dressed up in coloured lights.

Visitors

Cleveleys does get a lot of older people visiting, i think it's because it's a slower pace of life compared to the hustle and bustle of Blackpool, and they like to get the bargains at the market and B. and M. Bargains, which is a big store with lots of cheap things.

We will sit on this side

If you get a good magnifying glass you might be able to see Blackpool Tower.

Marsh Mill Village

This was the site of the old mill, it has now been turned into a small courtyard with a few specialist shops, cafe and pub, it also has a very nice but not cheap restaurant called 12, the windmill is still open to the public on certain days.

Thornton Little Theatre and Library

I have never been to this little theatre but i have heard it does some good am drams, i do go regularly though next door to the library, i have always got the travel books out.

Fruit and veg

On the rare occassion i decide to eat fresh fruit and veg this is where i get it from
