Add Hesketh Bank to your Itinerary

Hesketh Bank
This is West Lancashire's most northerly parish and has a lengthy foreshore along the south bank of the River Ribble. It also extends along the west bank of the river Douglas.

Eskyth, as in Hesketh Bank, is a Scandinavian word for racecourse. Not that there is a racecourse in Hesketh Bank today but many years ago a bygone lord of the manor held horse races on the sands where the Douglas joins the Ribble. This is now predominantly a market gardening area, once largely waste and marshland, washed up at high tide by the sea. 'Becconsall' is derived from beacon - as of the type used in shipping navigation
