Lytham Green, Windmill and Old Lifeboat House
Lytham Green, Windmill and Old Lifeboat House
The windmill was built in 1805 on what is now Lytham Green. It was worked until 1919 when a fire destroyed most of the machinery. It has been restored several times. One of the four sails was destroyed in storm on October 16th 2011. A new sail is due to be fitted in May 2012. To the left is the Old Lifeboat House; the Grade II listed building, which closed in 2004 was for many years a museum, telling the story of Lytham lifeboats from 1851 to the present day.
