    I think we're long overdue for a Camelot thread. ;) And it is a photo heavy one.

    The visit
    After a failed attempt to gain access in Preston, I was at a loose end and needed something to fill my day. So I jumped on the train and headed up to Chorley, I spent a good 3 hours in the park and ran into a few others (It is probably busier now then when it was open). This is the fourth time I've been and I'm still finding new things, especially my amazement when I walked into a building to not only find the three Knightmare cars that ran at the park, but the other two that were shipped here but never refurbished and used. And to round off my day I was followed around for a bit by a Quad Copter. :wanker

    History (Not that we all know it)
    Camelot Theme Park
    was a resort and theme park located in the English county of Lancashire. The park's theme was based on the famous legend of Camelot. It was located on a 140-acre (0.57 km2; 0.22 sq mi) site near the village of Charnock Richard, 3 miles (4.8 km) west of Chorley. One of the rollercoasters can be seen from the M6 near the Charnock Richard Services. The site is owned by The Story Group, and was operated by Knights Leisure. The park featured many rides, taking a target audience of families and younger children, however the park also boasted numerous thrill rides and roller coasters, including Whirlwind (a Maure Sohne spinning coaster), Knightmare and Excalibur. The park was featured in an episode of Sooty & Co., in which presenter Matthew Corbett takes Sooty, Sweep and Soo there. The theme park is now closed.
