31 vintage pictures of Thornton Cleveleys from Victoria Road West and the beach to Thornton Station and Burn Naze

These are a great set of photos, rarely seen and dug from our archives.

Thornton was a rural community back in the day with Cleveleys on the fringe of becoming a seaside attraction. The photos straddle the decades and remind us how this important part of the Fylde used to to look.
