The local area guide to living in Hesketh Bank

Hesketh Bank is a small, agricultural town located in Lancashire, in the North West of England. The name of the village is believed to be Norse in origin, roughly translating to ‘race track’. Legend has it that the Vikings enjoyed racing horses with one another and a full track was erected for these festivities.

During World War Two, the village was hit by stray bombs which damaged the architecture on Becconsall Lane. In particular, the exterior of Becconsall Church was damaged by bomb shrapnel - eventually leading to the church being demolished in 1985. The church has since been restored by the Churches Conservation Trust and Sunday Services resumed.

Hesketh Bank is perfectly situated for lovers of the countryside. Bucolic fields and pleasant, rural walkways are right on your doorstep. For an enjoyable countryside stroll, you can relax along the River Ribble and the Becconsall Heritage Walkway is highly recommended.

For sports fans, the local football club is the place to be. Hesketh Bank AFC play in the West Lancashire Football League - Premier Division and the atmosphere of their home games is electric. Be sure to visit the acclaimed Red Rock Steakhouse after the match.
