This two-storey property was purpose built in 1847, next to Lytham’s first railway station and was originally named the Railway Hotel. The station, which opened the previous year, had a classical façade and an octagonal-shaped booking office with a domed roof. It closed to passengers in 1874, was taken over by local brewers Catterall and Swarbrick in 1895 and a billiard room and four bedrooms added. There was also a bowling green at the rear, which made way for a builder’s yard in 1955.

Erected in 1805. The Marsh is now the well-kept green at the foot of Station Road. Its first tenant was Richard Marsh. Its last was William Swann who was tenant for 25 years. In 1919 it was ravaged by fire and remained derelict until 1921. It was restored in 1989 by Fylde Borough Council.
