Was really disappointed to see the neglect and decay onto the seating areas around the pier. The seating and rails could do with a good clean and painting.Come on Blackpool council do something about this now as it will only get worse Surely an asset like this should be preserved, not allowed to rot away T

This pier is in shocking condition, the boarding, paint work shabby and peeling, but worst of all is the edge seating areas where the wood is rotton to the point of dangerous. I was shocked at the overall condition.

Sad to see it so run down It could do with a lick of paint and some TLC and it was strange that there was no one about mid week in July.
