Jayne, drove along the sea front of Blackpool today, foggy everywhere else but lovely and clear along the prom, EnJoy.
Love this view. Just love Blackpool, we spend many happy hours here.
Storm Brendan is that windy, you can see the other leaves bending into view!
Well, Noel, don't go there in the early hours then. We wouldn't want the ghosties and ghoulies to get you....heh heh
Yes, the illuminations are now fully off again. Somebody told me the other day the ones we see on here were on as Christmas lights and sure enough they were switched off on the 6th. It does look creepy in the early hours with just the crossing lights being the only form of light there is! Very symbolic of Blackpool in January as this week its been the quietest I've ever seen/known it here. That will change next weekend when the pigeon fanciers arrive in town.
Hi Malcolm, I guess you spoke to soon! Looks like they've turned them off now. The sum total of the 'illuminations' ...and the only thing that indicates it's a live video feed at some times during the night ...is the pedestrian crossing beacon once again:-)Happy New Year to everyone on Skyline!
thanks Noel sorry for late reply been ill for 3 days not been watching You have answered my question it may work out cheaper to leave them up LED bulbs are not as fragile as the older ones and cheaper to run thanks again
Hi Malcolm. The lights we see here are all that's switched on. They go from Coral Island along the front of the Tower up to what we see on the cam. The rest of the Illuminations are switched off - only the tableaux displays at the Bispham end have been getting dismantled - not seen any others being removed. I did witness a couple of weeks ago some lights being removed from the Tower itself as they're replacing all the bulbs... been a bit depressing seeing that shrouded in darkness the last couple of months.
hi Happy New Year to Blackpool Skyline viewers can any locals in Blackpool tell me are the lights on just were we see on the camera or on elsewhere They are normally taken down in winter thanks for your help
And to you Paul, all the best.
@derek05, I think the answer that you have been waiting for mate is in the last line of her post! Seasons greetings to you!
Last day of 2019. Roll on the 20's
Avril, have you moved from Walkden then???
If we still lived in Walkden, tomorrow we would have had a trip to Blackpool and had a picnic there. It was something we did as the roads were quiet and we could move around. It was Bispham end we went to and sit in the covered in place on the lower prom. Happy New Year Skyliners from Gretna
Happy Christmas everyone and all at Skyline, also very Best Wishes for Health, Peace and Happiness for 2020 :)xx
EITHER, there's a major earthquake in Blackpool tonight, OR its raining heavily on the camera lens. Considering it's raining heavily here in Manchester, I can guess which is correct. :-)
