The weather never deters the travelling fanciers to Blackpool each year, I travelled quite a few times in bad conditions and managed to have a great weekend, even travelling back up the M6 to Stranraer in blizzards to catch the ferry home so I'm sure the journey will be fine for the travelling faithful and hoping they all arrive safely. The show moved from Doncaster in January 1977 to Blackpool to stage the Olympaid.

I drove Manchester to Edinburgh on Tuesday and it was only really between moffat junction and Abington that was bad

I work on road gritters for Amey Highways and if going from east side I’d recommend everyone uses the 702 down to Abington as we’ve been on this road 24/7 for last 2 days

And this route is patrolled all night also

I’d stay clear of the A701 or A7 down

To me Blackpool is failing every year, a lot of stalls not there now, making it look very busy, cant be bothered with the crowd banging into you etc, pubs/hotels/shops/B&B. etc, will doo a trade though, IMO, time for a change of venue, where, who knows.

Have a good weekend lads.
