There are six Siamese style promenade shelters between the North Pier and Cocker Square, they are grade II listed by Historic England and need a lot of love and maintenance to help them survive the force of the Irish sea! It's a terrible shame they are in such a state of disrepair on a prominent and busy thoroughfare into town, sadly it makes the seafront look shabby... Please support Blackpool Council and Blackpool Civic Trust in their repair.... They have protected residents and visitors from the elements since 1904...
Please show your support by joining the Blackpool Civic Trust or email your MP to highlight their neglect - thank you x
