May 2007 – Blackpools Noahs ark is getting the second part of a much needed paint job to the exterior. The ark is just over 85 years old and considering the Blackpool climate has survived pretty well since the hey days of 1922. The first part of this work took place at around the same time in 2006 with alot of the exterior animals, policeman and Mt Ararat been spruced up. At one point during the 2006 touch up Noah was left headless for a couple of weeks. For some reason perhaps budget the paint job was never completed. Heres a bunch of pictures taking on May 12th. As usual if you have any comments please dont hesistate to get in touch.

Here you can clearly see the amount of scaffolding they have used.
The amount of work on the front of the Ark is quite extensive.
A close up showing the dinosaur caged in scaffolding.
A couple of shots taken from the rear of the Ark.
The Polar bear at the rear of the Ark, I was always puzzled why this didnt get painted back in 2006, for me looking up at the ark it always looked out of place with the freshly painted animals around it.
