Two small villages on the SW tip of the Cartmel Peninsula near Grange-over-Sands. Flookburgh has a long association with the sea, and also nearby Cark Airfield used in World War 2. It actually dates back to WW1 when it was being prepared for launching dirigibles or airships. Ravenstown was built to house the workers, but the project was suddenly cancelled by the Navy. During WW2 Cark Airfield was used for training aircrew and others.
Cark is an adjacent village with strong links to Holker Hall (qv) and early water-powered cotton production and paper-making.
Flookburgh airfield (Cark Airfield) is also the site of the Flookburgh Steam Gathering held every year.
