Things to do: museums
Flookburgh is an ancient village on the Cartmel peninsula in Cumbria, until 1974 part of Lancashire. Being close to Morecambe Bay, fishing plays a big part in village life. Cockle and shrimp fishermen still venture out onto the sands every day, nowadays using specially adapted tractors.Flookburgh is sometimes thought to derive its name from a flat fish, known as the Fluke flukes, found in the area. (Many people in Flookburgh say, in fact, that Flookburgh wasn't named after the Fluke. The Fluke was named after the village.)However, it is far more likely that the name is Norse, an adaptation of 'Flugga's Town'.Flookburgh is also home to the Lakeland Willow water company, the famous Cartmel Sticky Toffee Pudding is made in Flookburgh.Cark airfield, which is actually in Flookburgh, is home to the North West Parachute Centre and is the place where the Annual Steam Gathering takes place.Latterly, Flookburgh has become a centre for tourism as a number of large caravan sites have attracted increasing numbers of visitors to the area. At the end of Moor Lane, approximately £4 million has been spent in recent years fortifying the sea wall to ensure that the nearby Lakeland Leisure Park is not flooded.Flookburgh has been the starting point for the CancerCare Cross Bay Challenge - a run across the Morecambe Bay sands to Hest Bank which was filmed in 2008 by ITV as part of its Human Guinea Pig fitness series.
