Fleetwood is a town within the Wyre district of Lancashire, England, lying at the northwest corner of the Fylde. It had a population of 26,840 people at the 2001 Census. It forms part of the Greater Blackpool conurbation. The town was the first planned community of the Victorian era. For most of the 20th century, Fleetwood was a prominent deep-sea fishing port, but, since the 1970s, the fishing industry has declined precipitously and the town has undergone economic difficulties. Fleetwood is also a seaside resort, serving as a quiet contrast to nearby Blackpool.

Famous quotes containing the word fleetwood:

    I sowed the seeds of love,
    It was all in the spring,
    In April, May, and June, likwise,
    When small birds they do sing.
    —Mrs. Fleetwood Habergham (d. 1703)
