The Golden Mile
  • Inspired by Blackpool's infamous Golden Mile; a stretch of almost one mile from Central Pier to the Tower, with the beach and sea on one side and numerous amusement arcades and rock sellers on the other.
  • This temporary piece of (truly) public art was made by over 5,000 local people (mainly children) who created their own golden inches, that were assembled into giant tape measures, before being attached and lit on the Grade II listed building, by Blackpool's Illuminations Department.
  • Approximately one mile of inches surrounded The Grundy Art Gallery and Central Library - a panorama of almost 80 metres - from 31st July to 31st October 1998.
  • Funded by LCC, Blackpool CC and many others!
