    Hey all,

    Visited Camelot this evening with Telf1980 only the second time meeting him and the first time doing something on our own so thanks Telf for not raping and killing me in some woods... :thumbs

    Here's some bollocks from The BBC...
    Camelot Theme Park in Lancashire has closed, with the operator blaming a decline in visitors for the decision.
    The attraction at Charnock Richard, near Chorley, has been open for 29 years and employs more than 150 people during summer months.
    Operator Knights Leisure announced it would not reopen for the 2013 season.
    Roy Page, managing director of Knights Leisure, said poor summer weather and events such as London 2012 and the Queen's Jubilee hit visitor numbers.

    He said: "Following a number of years of declining visitor numbers, the 2012 season proved particularly challenging.
    "Whilst we have become used to inclement summer weather in the UK during the past few years, a combination of the wettest summer for 100 years, the Queen's Jubilee celebrations followed by the spectacular television coverage of the Olympic Games during our busiest months of the summer and the school holidays had a major impact on visitors to Camelot.

    In my words; I really enjoyed it but I think that's only because I went there as a child and had lot's of flash backs, the place is much smaller than I remembered.

    Not much there besides a couple of rollers and the pirate ship - Glad I went, don't think I'd go back but worth a look if you've not been (easy access but does have Security)
