    Here is ANOTHER Camelot visit. Thought we would pop in, seeing as we were visiting friends nearby anyway. May as well have kept it open considering how easy access was. Whilst inside, almost had a heart attack as we ran into 2 different groups also exploring. Wish I would have visited before as everything has been broken and graffiti-ed.

    History bit from wiki
    The resort and theme park opened in 1983 and is located in the county of Lancashire. The park was based on the story of 'Camelot, King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table'.On 22 October 2001, a park employee was struck by The Gauntlet roller coaster and was killed.
    The closure of the park was announced by its operator, 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.Today, some roller coasters were sold (for example Whirlwind bought by the German "Skyline Park"), others rust in the abandoned park.
    An application to build 420 houses on the site by owners Story Group was unanimously rejected by Chorley Council in August 2014 as the development was not permissible within the green belt.
