The practice area

The practice is based in Thornton-Cleveleys, an historic area which was named in the doomsday book in 1086. It has several restaurants, cafes and shops in the area. Little Thornton Theatre is across the road which has a lot of events. There are many lovely rural villages in the surrounding area, although being in a semi urban setting we are close to Manchester and Preston for shopping and entertainment. We also have easy access to the lake-district and the Wyre’s sweeping and incredibly diverse coastline good for walking. There is excellent schooling in the area. There is a wide variety of reasonably priced housing from modern spacious to charming and rustic depending if you choose to live rural or urban. All in all we are convinced we have something for everyone in our area, whether it is walking, climbing, boating and fishing, visiting historical places, good food, good entertainment or a little retail therapy nearby!
