Yahoo Map of Argleton - The Nonexistant Town

Info Map Comments (2) Related Files


Argleton is a "phantom" settlement that appears on Google Maps and Google Earth but does not actually exist. The supposed location of Argleton is just off the A59 road within the civil parish of Aughton in West Lancashire, England, but in reality is nothing more than empty fields. Data from Google is used by other online information services which are consequently treating Argleton as a real settlement within the L39 postcode area. As a result, Argleton also appears in numerous listings for things such as real estate, employment and weather, but although the people, businesses and services listed are all in fact real, they are actually based elsewhere in the same postcode area.
