The trail is made up of a series of artworks created by schools, organisations and groups from the area illustrating the history of the Fylde Coast. You can walk along the the trail and explore the 22 boards to discover more about the the area’s attractions and learn all about Fleetwood’s fascinating heritage.
Enjoy the fresh sea air as you explore the trail whilst admiring the boats in the marina. The artwork is a permanent fixture and is accessible, free of charge, during the centre’s opening hours.
Subjects covered by the Fleetwood Heritage Trail include the history of the town, the birth of the fishing industry, birds that can be seen in the area, shipwrecks and famous people from Fleetwood.
The boards were created by Cardinal Allen High School, Fleetwood Market, The Fleetwood Weekly News, Fisherman’s Friend, Rossall Primary School, The RNLI and The RSPB. Fleetwood Museum also advised the Freeport Fleetwood team where to find historical information for the boards.
John Magee, Centre Manager at Freeport Fleetwood, said: “The area around Freeport Fleetwood has such a rich and interesting history; we wanted to invest in this art project to celebrate our heritage with the local community.
“We want to say a big thank you to the schools and organisations for giving up their free time and taking part. The May half term is the perfect opportunity for the public to come for a stroll along the marina and take some time to appreciate what makes Fleetwood great and hopefully learn a thing or two at the same time.”
Members of the Fleetwood Detachment Army Cadets and the Fleetwood Sea Cadets braved some wet weather to help paint the marina fence at Freeport Fleetwood earlier in the year, as part of the shopping centre’s Fleetwood Heritage Trail community outreach project.

Freeport Fleetwood celebrates 20 years this summer and they're inviting you to submit your photos, videos and anecdotes of visits to the centre for a special celebratory memory wall which will be erected in the Centre.
The centre opened its doors back in 1995 on the site of the former Wyre Dock with brands including Regatta, Double Two and Hallmark . It's come a long way since then and is enjoying a highly successful trading period and going from strength to strength with great brands on site and an increased number of shoppers who visit on a regular basis.
To help with the celebrations the outlet is inviting the local community to submit pictures, videos or stories of their best memories at the centre over the past 20 years. From shopping selfies, to first-shoe-fittings, prom-dress-picking trips, McDonald’s first dates and even classic catch-ups in Costa; whatever the memory, story or snapshot, the Centre management team wants to see it.
The submissions will then be used to compile a striking memory wall which will launch at the centre’s Best of British event on 12th September. Stories and images can be submitted via Facebook and Twitter (@FleetwoodOutlet) using the hashtag #FFis20 or by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Freeport Fleetwood has also seen generations of families flow through its workforce including current employees Michelle Clixby and her mother, Irene. Irene has worked at Pavers Shoes at the centre since it opened 20 years ago and Michelle has been working at the centre since February 2000 where she started working in the then outdoor leisure department. Michelle now works in the centre management office.
Michelle said: “Freeport Fleetwood is part of our family as both me and my mum have worked here for such a long time. It’s such a great atmosphere and we genuinely look forward to coming into work every day. The 20 year celebrations, especially the memory wall, are a great way to encourage everyone to get involved and submit their memories of the centre – whether it’s a first date which eventually led to a wedding, or simply someone buying their favourite ever pair of shoes we would love to hear from the local community.”
Centre Manager, John Magee, said: “I have only been here for a year but I already have so many special memories. Plus it’s great to hear the stories from staff like Michelle and Irene who have been here such a long time. The memory wall will enable us to celebrate 20 years along with our customers and I can’t wait to hear and see all the memories that are submitted.
“The birthday celebrations will culminate in our second Best of British event on Saturday 12th September which will be a great big party for staff and customers to enjoy!”
To commemorate this special landmark in its history, earlier this year Freeport Fleetwood worked with the local community to create the Fleetwood Heritage Trail.

They include the history of the town, the birth of the fishing industry, birds that can be seen in the area, shipwrecks and famous people from Fleetwood. Read more about it below.
