  1. The park opened in 1983 and was operating seasonally until late 2012. The park was based on the story of 'Camelot, King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table'. The local area was once covered by the largest lake in England Martin Mere, which was first drained in 1692 by Thomas Fleetwood of Bank Hall in Bretherton. The closure of the park was announced by Knights Leisure, in November 2012, the managing director blaming poor summer weather and events such as London 2012 and the Queen's Jubilee for declining visitor numbers. The site's future remains uncertain as the new owner is planning to redevelop the site. Current indications are that this will be a housing development. These pics are from 2 visits to Camelot, probably the last unfortunately as the rude security guard yielding a large stick gave us a good telling off the second time. and even sneakily took photographs of us to 'send to the police!' He shouted and swore for a while about how dangerous the site was and the definition of private land, reminded us that we were massive dickheads, and asked us to leave. Really fun explore, great laugh and beautiful little treasures on a fairy tale wasteland indeed Camelot is, ''The land of great knights, and amazing days.'' ham anyone?
