CAMELOT - Theme Park - Photographic Report - Feb 2018

 

 

This abandoned resort and theme park is located in the English county of Lancashire.

The park's theme was based on the well-known story of King Arthur and the Knights of the roundtable

 

After numerous takeovers, the theme park was purchased by Story Group and leased to Knight's Leisure who ran the park.

However, it's closure was announced by the operator, in November 2012.

In August 2014, an application to build houses on the site was unanimously rejected with 261 public objections.

 

 

As of Feb 2018, the park stands empty a former shadow of its glory day slowly but surely falling victim to mother nature.

 

A new housing development plan has been submitted, to many a protest from the local residents,

However, if it does go through the once magical kingdom of Camelot will be lost forever.

 

We gained entry into the former petting zoo and made our way to the middle of the park where we were caught by 4 security guards and a static full of dogs.

 

 

Anyway, I hope you can enjoy the pics as its all I was able to get.

 

Any feedback greatly appreciated.

Nice collection of pics you've got from there :) Camelot is a bit infamous in the UE world and there are a LOT of terrible accounts of this place, but you've done a good job here :thumb

      Snowdown was the deepest colliery in Kent reaching well over 3,000 ft (915 metres). It was also the hottest and most humid pit in Kent and was given the name 'Dante's Inferno' by the miners. Regarded by many as the worst pit to work at in Britain, most Snowdown miners worked naked because clothes became too uncomfortable. The miners could consume around 24 pints (14 lires) of water in an 8-hour shift. There were frequent cases of heat stroke.

      Snowdown closed in 1987

      What's left of the south marston hotel, remains an empty, scorched shell. Not much to see on this one, and I am way to late but hey, it still provides an eerie vibe. And the photos came out pretty good too. Thanks,

      Predannack opened in 1941 as an RAF base, but today is the satellite airfield to RNAS Culdrose - it is a restricted MOD site and an active airfield used daily for flying training and also provides our Fire Fighting training facility. The area is heavily utilised by Culdrose helicopter squadrons, light fixed wing aircraft and, on an occasional basis by other aircraft types including jet aircraft, for a variety of reasons. Predominantly crews are involved in intensive training sorties involving a high cockpit workload. On average there is in excess of 2000 aircraft moves a month at the unit. The airfield is also used by the Fire Training School for live fire fighting and rescue instruction/exercises and there is also a rifle range at Predannack which is frequently used for live weapon firings. Additionally the airfield is used for a variety of additional tasks when the Control Tower is unmanned e.g. gliding.
