A37 SOUTH SHORE

When this former Blackpool Borough Station was absorbed into Lancashire County in 1974, the ariel appliance for the Fylde Coast was allocated to South Shore.  It subsequently moved to Bispham, when the ISU came here. Latterly it has moved again to Blackpool.

Seen whilst in the training fleet, former Blackpool Fire Brigade ERF NFV213M spent all its normal working life at South Shore.
