    Camelot Theme Park was a resort and theme park located in the English county of Lancashire (the last operating season was in 2012, the park will not open for 2013). 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. 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 Maurer Söhne spinning coaster), Knightmare and Excalibur.

    i first explored this site back in 2009 with a mate on the way back from another explore,we had heard that year that the park had closed earlier than expected for the season so we decided to check it out.

    we got about most of the place before we were asked to leave by the site manager,i suppose being the only ones without a high viz on it was only a matter of time before we were busted ,she wouldnt comment at the time why the park had closed early when i asked.


    fast forward a few years later and confirmation of the parks closure was announced,many explorers flocked to the site,i should have been one of them but i was being a lazy cunt at the time so ive missed most of the good photo opportunities,so my main reason for visiting this site at present was mainly just for memory sakes as as a child i often came to this park at either school visits or on organised trips.

    visited in 2009 with a mate and recently with telf....cheers for the invite and the driving matey :thumb

    recently when me and telf visited we was approached by the security guard sited by the knightmare ride.....hes there making sure people dont climb up it apparently......but being a good sport he let us continue but wouldnt let us up top of the ride.


    heres some 2009 pitures first
