The seaside resort of Fleetwood is only a few miles from Blackpool, but a world away from its neighbour's brash delights. The attractions of mid-20th century Fleetwood are of a quieter nature, and if there is little to set the pulse racing, there are compensations such as the pier, floral gardens, open-air pool and beauty contest, or the boating lake, hosting international model yacht racing.
