St Annes Beach Huts 1980

History of St Annes Beach Huts

Beach Huts have a long history in St Annes and they have been around on the Fylde coast for hundreds of years in one shape or another. The last beach huts in Lytham St Anne’s, (main picture above), were demolished in the late 1980s .

It has been a challenging journey bringing back beach huts to Lytham St Annes. There has been vandalism, severe storms and even protests to name just a few! The team behind the new Beach Huts were undeterred. They concentrated efforts on providing visitors a modern twist to the old fashioned seaside tradition. There really is something magical about the quintessentially British Beach Hut & its’ appeal is timeless. Scenes from today are really no different to the ones decades ago. It is all about the simple pleasure of spending quality time with friends and family, and that is what really makes the experience so special. A really  big thank you to all our Hutters for helping us along our journey. 

Here are a few images we’ve collected along the way.
