Where's our clock?
Residents of Fulwood will have noticed that the old clock which used to hang from a bracket on the front wall of the former Fulwood Urban District Council (UDC) offices, at the junction of Garstang Road and Watling Street Road, has gone.

Dukes theatre & cinema. Worth the journey. This Lancaster based theatre has acquired a well-deserved reputation for innovation and entertainment. We're fans of the summer outdoor productions in Williamson Park and the family Christmas show is particularly popular. Lots of mainstream and independent movie screenings.
Saint Anthony of Padua. St. Anthony's Church is situated on Cadley Causeway, Fulwood. The church comes under the jurisdiction of the Lancaster Roman Catholic Diocesan Trust.
