Charcon Hard Landscaping, a division of Aggregate Industries, is supporting a project to restore Anchorsholme Park to its former glory, as extensive engineering works on the Blackpool seafront location progress.


Since 2015, the park has been occupied by United Utilities, which is investing £80m to improve the sewage systems and clean up the sea’s bathing waters. As engineering works complete, the park will be re-landscaped and new facilities will be added, including a bowling club, café, outdoor seating area, children’s playground, sports area with tennis courts, and a trim trail.

For the regeneration of the park, 2,286m2 of premium quality Andover Textured Block Paving has been ordered for the hard landscaping. Incorporating uniquely formulated Cornish aggregates to maximise performance, this exceptionally durable and stylish paving is ideal for high foot traffic areas, such as pedestrian areas and pathways.

All works are due to complete in 2020 and the park will be accessible from the beach and a new stretch of Prince’s Way, where multi-million pound sea defences have already opened.

Mark Barter, Sales Director at Charcon, said: “The Anchorsholme Park project is incredibly exciting as it will see the return of much-loved community park with brand new leisure facilities for residents and visitors to the area to enjoy. With our knowledge and product proficiency, we are ideally placed to work on this landscaping project and we’re looking forward to seeing the park come back to life in the coming months.”
