Villages in Wyre

Wyre is home to some of the most charming, picturesque villages in Lancashire. With quaint pubs, idyllic cottages, and fantastic country walks, they offer the perfect backdrop for a relaxing rural escape.

If you're not feeling quite so active then don't worry, you have no end of places to visit to help you unwind. Have afternoon tea in one of the cafes in Scorton, picnic on Harris End Fell and enjoy some of the most spectacular views in the country. Amble round the charming Over Wyre villages or buy fresh local produce at the regular markets in Great Eccleston and Poulton-le-Fylde.

Join the River Wyre as it passes through pretty St. Michaels on Wyre and visit Over Wyre, a large expanse of land between the river and Morecambe Bay where you will find  more lovely villages such as Out Rawcliffe, Hambleton, Stalmine and Preesall; and also the stunning village of Pilling.

Churchtown is one of the oldest villages in Wyre. It has a cobbled square and market cross leading to the church of St. Helen, which is known as the Cathedral of the Fylde. 

Visit in summer, with bees and butterflies, lilac scented gardens and lakes scintillating in the sunshine. In autumn you will love the colours of the trees and the childish thrill of kicking through the fallen leaves. Winter offers white clad landscapes and crisp, fresh mornings, and of course spring is perfect for seeing the lambs and the swathes of spring flowers as the landscape burst into life once again.
