Blackpool Central

Blackpool Central station site as seen from the Tower in January 2016. It is over fifty years since it closed in 1964 but, from above, the former railway land can still be identified. The white building in the foreground is Coral Island, which occupies the site of the old terminus building. The car parks are laid over the fourteen platforms and the M55 link road goes south along the old formation through Bloomfield Road towards the still open Blackpool South. The tall red brick building at the far left of the car park is the old railwaymen's lodging house, now holiday flats.
