Clarke Broome & Fleming

That history began with the firm's foundation, in Leopold Grove, Blackpool, where the original founder, Mr Percy V Clarke, established the business above the retail premises of Ernest Flower, a gentleman's outfitter. This proved to be an excellent move, in more ways than one, as Ernest Flower later became a prominent client of the practice.

This move proved to be extremely timely for the practice that was now known as P.V. Clarke, Son & Broome. At this time, it took advantage of its prime town centre location to forge many close links with some of the businesses that it still retains on its books today, even if the faces behind those businesses may have changed and ownership passed to a second generation of entrepreneurs.
