Vintage Blackpool tram shelter set to shed scaffolding – Blackpool Gazette

Workers at Little Bispham tram stop found structural problems in part of the ceiling and repairs had to stop for safety reasons for many months.

The shelter has been surrounded by scaffolding which residents have said poses an obstacle for people wanting to catch trams to Fleetwood.

The shelter on the Fleetwood side of the line was built in 1935 as a sister shelter to the larger one at Bispham.

Mick O’Brien, of Queen’s Promenade, said: “It has been left like that for nine months with no-one working on it.

“The scaffolding is a problem. I have seen pensioners actually miss their tram to Fleetwood because they could not get round it in time.

“It is a beautiful building, I don’t believe it is listed but it is a piece of architecture history. Vintage Blackpool tram shelter set to shed scaffolding – Blackpool Gazette
