About us

Carnforth rotarians are a friendly bunch who are extremely active in the local comunities. We work closely with Carnforth Town Council and other organisations offering support to those of all ages.                                                                               We thank Tesco and Booths supermarkets for their continuing support in a number of our projects.
Come and join us for fun, friendship and to make a difference in your community.

Carnforth is a market town in Lancashire, close to the Cumbria/Lancashire border which grew in the 19th century through the presence of the railway and ironworks and is famous for the railway scene in Brief Encounter.

Due to the closeness of the coast and the hills, it is a popular base for walkers and cyclists exploring the area. The River Keer, the West Coast Main Line (WCML), the A6 and the Lancaster Canal pass through the town. The M6 motorwapasses just to the east, linked to Carnforth by the A601(M).
