This is a short circular stroll around the area immediately next to The Wescoe during lockdown, starting and ending at Dean Street. Many of you will have never seen Blackpool this quiet and I’d guess that many of you will have never strolled behind the Sandcastle and seen the Art installations there; it’s the perfect place for strolling, cycling or just escaping the hustle and bustle. See for yourself!
