    The History.
    Pontins is the trading name of Britannia Jinky Jersey Ltd, a company operating holiday parks in the UK.
    The original pontins company was founded in 1946 by Fred pontin.
    The 2,440-capacity site with 512 run-down chalets specialised in half board and self catering breaks, has been empty since September 2008,and finally closed its doors 2009,following a period of sustained operating losses.
    Ocean parcs bought the chain of seven resorts for £46 million in 2007,bet they regretted that.

    The explore!
    Spent many a holiday here wen I was a child and also taken my kids there for holidays.just down the road for me.
    On this visit I took my daughter and her partner ollie336 (another member) we entered with no worries and began our tour around.
    Shame the place has been so trashed,spent a good Sunday afternoon having fun like old times, one of those places you never get bored of.
    And we also bumped into a couple of other explorers.

    Pictures are not the best, i apologise never the less enjoy. 20160117_153832_zpswwhz1ovl.jpg 20160117_152213_zpsyz0u8jar.jpg 20160117_152316_zps0shgtaf3.jpg 20160117_153047_zpsh1yqai7f.jpg 20160117_151802_zps1goxtqzm.jpg 20160117_152908_zpscdeqdjpt.jpg 20160117_154231_zpstjrtsclr.jpg 20160117_155145_zpshb3sewdp.jpg 20160117_155235_zpsnrrzsbeh.jpg 20160117_154151_zpselfp5fgp.jpg 20160117_155823_zpsoettudut.jpg 20160117_155840_zpsoysgi1u6.jpg 20160117_160038_zpsw323zauw.jpg 20160117_160209_zpsaie5u4vr.jpg 20160117_160357_zpsa1yf4fdk.jpg 20160117_160819_zpsbyne1ukh.jpg 20160117_160849_zpsrpaqyydg.jpg 20160117_152847_zpstllvs3by.jpg 20160117_161454_zpsgxyuiwid.jpg 20160117_153453_zpsyyvpcsnt.jpg 20160117_161944_zpst3qmij8z.jpg 20160117_162244_zps4vvyagq1.jpg 20160117_162341_zpszzx3ntyt.jpg 20160117_162711_zpss5wspxdq.jpg 20160124_160302_zps3uo1d72e.jpg 20160124_161102_zps1u02dajt.jpg 20160124_161628_zpschvkrkcu.jpg 20160117_162725_zpsfvwffy7t.jpg 20160117_161205_zpsc8f1kfw4.jpg 20160117_154144_zpsgxk1yy4k.jpg same old stuff different day!

    Looks even more trashed than it did a year ago. I too spent many a time here during the summer at this holiday park. The last time I was in there before I explored it it was in full swing of holidayers, mums and kids sat on the green next to the swimming pool. A real hotspot back in the day. Such a shame. You covered the site well :)
