Below is a video of the new lighting at the top of Blackpool Tower. There are also some still pictures. in these you can see the new floor to ceiling glass walls and the extended glass floor.

Sorry the video is a bit shaky and noisy  –  just a phone camera from a windy beach.


Coral Island with a Shepherds delight sky behind.

Work is well underway on a new building on the prom in front of the Blackpool Tower.

This will be a new wedding chapel, cafe/restaurant and tourist information centre. It has already been dubbed the IKEA shed but hopefully it will look wonderful when it is finished.
