Garstang earned its “black and white” nickname for the thousands of tons of coal and limestone shuttled down the waters during the Industrial Revolution. You can still watch boats head up and down there today, passing under ancient aqueducts. 

In 2000, Garstang declared itself the world’s first Fairtrade community. At the time, 95% of vendors and public institutions declared they would only buy and sell Fairtrade items locally and internationally. This means you’ll have a wealth of options for fresh, high-quality meals, groceries and materials. Residents of Garstang also benefit from several local arts centres and the Acresfield Health Club & Spa. You can dine, drink, book a massage and stroll by the water and let stress slip away. In one of the prettiest towns in Lancashire, there’s so much to keep you inspired.
