Flookburgh rooftops – Pat Rowland

Flookburgh is an ancient village with a charter dating back to the 11th century, and fishing played a big part in village life. Cockle and shrimp fishermen still venture out onto the sands every day, nowadays using specially adapted tractors. Cark airfield, which is actually in Flookburgh, is home to the parachute centre, on Winder Moor, and is the place where the Annual Steam Gathering takes place.
