ERNIE's old home
ERNIE's old home
During World War II a number of government departments were evacuated to the Fylde. Barbed wire along the sea wall ( LinkExternal link ) was off-putting to most of the traditional visitors so there were plenty of seaside landladies happy to accommodate the evacuated staff. They worked in offices such as these in Heyhouses Lane. After the war these buildings housed the offices of the Premium Bonds - ERNIE, the random number generator was here - LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) & LinkExternal link . National Savings have moved elsewhere in the Fylde but the offices are still in use by the Department of Health and Social Security.
