a band (musical band) with Anderson and future Jethro Tull members John Evan and Barriemore Barlow.

Hammond burned the suit in December 1975 on his departure from the band. Rees, p. 70. DATE OF BIRTH 30 July 1946 PLACE OF BIRTH Blackpool, Lancashire, England DATE OF DEATH By 1838, Hesketh-Fleetwood had run into serious financial difficulties, with costs for the railway in particular ultimately exceeding £300,000. He had numerous financial arguments with Frederick Kemp, who borrowed against the estate revenues to finance the expansion of the town, and was suspected of taking financial advantage of Sir Peter. Hesketh-Fleetwood became short of cash and was forced to mortgage his properties. Depressed, he gradually withdrew from the project, and by 1844 he had been obliged to sell much of his estate. He leased Rossall Hall itself to the Church of England, which intended to set up a boarding school as a North of England equivalent of Marlborough School (Marlborough School (Woodstock)). Under the auspices of Rev. St. Vincent Beechey (St. Vincent Beechey), the vicar of Fleetwood, it was to become Rossall School. Virtually bankrupt, Hesketh-Fleetwood retired to Brighton, giving up his parliamentary obligations in 1847. Meanwhile, Kemp's influence expanded. He had set up the ''Fleetwood Estates Company'' to manage the land, and the North Lancashire Steam Navigation Company in 1843 to manage the expanding steamer trade. However, by the late 1850s, the combination of the new western railway route and the rise of neighbouring Blackpool as a prominent seaside resort signalled a decline in the town's fortunes. Topography Fleetwood is located on the Fylde Peninsula (The Fylde), eight miles (13 km) north of Blackpool, on the western side of the mouth of the River Wyre. The town itself is on a peninsula, almost two miles (3 km) wide, bounded to the west by the Irish Sea, to the north by Morecambe Bay, and to the east by the River Wyre. Access to Fleetwood is thus restricted, and for many years there were only two roads into and out of the town. A large sandbank, the North Wharf, extends some two and a quarter miles north into Morecambe Bay, and is exposed at low tide. The river channel forms the eastern boundary of the bank. Together with the larger Bernard Wharf on the other side of the river, this makes navigation of the river difficult. Conversely, the port is highly sheltered from the prevailing westerly winds. In Lancashire and Cumbria the proposals for multiple unitary authorities were very similar to those proposed by the Redcliffe-Maud Report in 1969. This proposed authorities for North Cumbria based in Carlisle (Carlisle, Cumbria), and one for Morecambe Bay covering Barrow-in-Furness and Lancaster (Lancaster, England) for the north of the region. In central Lancashire there were to be divided into four authorities based on Blackpool, Preston (Preston,_Lancashire), Blackburn and Burnley. The area of West Lancashire was to be given to Merseyside and included with Southport in a district. valign top '''Option 1''' #Blackpool with Fleetwood (Blackpool with parts of Wyre) #Blackburn with Darwen #Morecambe Bay (Lancaster (City of Lancaster) with South Lakeland and Barrow-in-Furness (Barrow-in-Furness (borough)) from Cumbria) #Blackpool and the Fylde (Blackpool, Wyre and Fylde (Fylde (borough))) #Central Lancashire (Preston (Preston,_Lancashire), South Ribble and Chorley (Chorley (borough))) Several years later, Dibnah and his family went on holiday, to Blackpool. The trip was filmed for television and showed Dibnah's preference for working rather than holidaying. He did however manage to undertake the removal of a small chimney stack from a business in the town, under a distinctly grey sky and aided by his wife, Alison. His payment for the job was a new front plate for the boiler of his traction engine. Dibnah, however, refused to take any more holidays and, after 18 years of marriage, Alison booked and paid for a holiday to Greece, taking their three children (Jayne, Lorna and Caroline) with her. Dibnah remained at home and was surprised when, upon her return, she asked for a divorce. WikiPedia:Blackpool Commons:Category:Blackpool
