Chapelry History

Flookburgh (St John the Baptist) was created as a chapel of ease from the parish of Cartmel, union of Ulverston, hundred of Lonsdale north of the Sands, N. division of the county of Lancaster, 1¾ mile (S. W.) from Cartmel. See also List of Chapelries in Cartmel Parish. The ancient village, called Lower Holker, is on the Cartmel peninsula in Lancashire. Being close to Morecambe Bay, fishing plays a big part in its village life. [1]
