As the Industrial Revolution took hold in the 18th and 19th centuries, Lancashire flourished producing more than 80 per cent of the world’s cotton.
People flocked to the county’s beautiful coastline, and towns like Morecambe, Blackpool and Lytham St Annes became popular coastal resorts.
Although much has changed over the years, Lancashire’s coastline still retains many of its traditional features.
In Lancashire Coast Through Time, join author Jack Smith as he delves into the history of the towns and villages along our picturesque coastline. The county historian showcases many points of interest and awakens treasured memories with full colour new and historical pictures to show how streets, buildings and areas have changed.
Jack has lived in Lancashire most of his life, his family roots being in the railway town of Horwich near Bolton.
Lancashire Coast Through Time is published in paperback and ebook by Amberley Publishing.
