More about Charnley Road
When you look at a map you can clearly see a grid of long, straight, interconnecting roads forming the backbone of Blackpool. Most of them date way back in time, to the 1800’s when fields and open land was enclosed.
Charnley Road is one of these old, original roads. Look up at the architecture of the tall, old buildings and you can imagine what it would have been like, back in the day.
Here’s a few bits of random Charnley Road trivia, from down the years –
It was 1890 when William Grantham founded Grantham’s Sign Writers and Stationers at Charnley Road. For many years the premises were their retail shop. Now sadly closed, it’s the base for their online store. Granthams was a favourite spot to head to on rainy days while on holiday as a child in the 1970s – and most definitely a favourite haunt of VFC right up to closing.
The Weights and Measures Inspector’s Office was based there in 1927.
The Blackpool Co-operative Society Funeral Chapel opened at 19 Charnley Road on 9 September 1931. It was later occupied by the NDF furniture store, which opened in 1976 and closed in 2007.
The ‘Donkey Charter’ of May 1942 required all beach donkeys to be licensed. This was done at Charnley Road.
Ever noticed a hotel called ‘Barry’s’ at Charnley Road? It was owned by actress Alice Barry who starred in Shameless.
