Local Area: BLACKPOOL
Background:
Blackpool is a seaside resort on the Lancashire coast in
North West England. The town is on the Irish Sea, between
the Ribble and Wyre estuaries, 15 miles (24 km) northwest
of Preston, 27 miles (43 km) north of Liverpool, 28 miles
(45 km) northwest of Bolton and 40 miles (64 km)
northwest of Manchester. It had an estimated population of
139,720 at the 2011 Census, making it the most populous
town in Lancashire.
Blackpool rose to prominence and as a major centre of
tourism in England when a railway was built in the 1840s
connecting it to the industrialized regions of Northern
England. The railway made it much easier and cheaper for
visitors to reach Blackpool, triggering an influx of settlers,
such that in 1876 Blackpool was incorporated as a borough, governed by its own town council and aldermen. In
1881, Blackpool was a booming resort with a population of 14,000 and a promenade complete with piers, fortunetellers, public houses, trams, donkey rides, fish-and-chip shops and theatres. By 1901 the population of Blackpool
was 47,000, by which time its place was cemented as "the archetypal British seaside resort". By 1951 it had grown to
147,000.
