icn_location The Location

Garstang is a lovely old market town and civil parish within the Wyre borough of Lancashire.

It is 10 miles north of Preston and 11 miles south of Lancaster, being easily accessible via the M6 or A6. Blackpool is only 16 miles away via the M55, while the M6 can be accessed just six miles to the north at junction 33 or about 8 miles to the South at Junction 32.

The town is set on the banks of the River Wyre and is know as the gateway to the Forest of Bowland, an area of “Outstanding Natural Beauty”. In addition to the River Wyre, the Kendal - Preston Canal runs through part of the town, now a leisure amenity for pleasure craft, long walks and even fishing. There is also the Garstang Heritage Trail which has been developed to explore and enjoy the area. All this allows families to have the “great outdoors” experience within easy reach of Garstang.

Hudson Park and local recreation ground are near The Bowlands and it is a leisurely stroll to the River Wyre.
