Friends Of Buckshaw Village From the 11 November 2017 to the 25 March 2018, a previously reported, the railway lines between Blackpool North/South and Preston will be affected by the electrification of the line. At the time of going to press, the line from Preston to Blackpool South was due to reopen on the 29 January. However the line between Preston and Blackpool North will remain closed until 25 March 2018. The 17 mile route is being fully electrified, which will mean greener and quieter electric trains with more seats. There will also be improvements to track layout, signalling equipment, upgrades of bridges and structures, strengthening of railway embankments and clearing overgrown vegetation, which it is hoped will help to reduce delays and improve performance. This is a continuance of the work that was going on throughout 2017, which included considerable work on the line running through Buckshaw Village. There are rail replacement bus services in operation, so if you're travelling on that route, please check the National Rail Enquiries website at: Join us on Thursday nights at The Mill at Charnock Farm with guitarist/singer/songwriter IAN BAILEY performing an eclectic mix of covers and originals from 7.30pm “One of the best singer songwriters out there at the moment” WHISPERIN AND HOLLERIN MAGAZINE HHHH MAVERICK MAGAZINE To advertise contact 07531 354695
