South Shore  Lancashire


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described South Shore like this:

SHORE (South), a village and a chapelry in Bispham parish, Lancashire. The village stands on the coast, and on the Blackpooland Lytham railway, nominally 1 mile S of Blackpool, but really almost continuous with it; consists of ranges of villas and terraces, fronting the sea; and has a r. station, a post-office under Preston, a good bathing beach, saltwater baths, a central spacious brick building called College Francais, a neat brick church of 1836, a Wesleyan chapel, and a national school. ...

The chapelry has no assigned limits. The living is a p. curacy in the diocese of Manchester. Value, £200.* Patron, Col. Clifton.
