    Pontins. Hemsby. Norfolk. September 2013. shot on Velvia 50 35mm Film

    Visited here with my good friend and my daughter. I new the site well but had never visited, so decided that we would as I had a roll of Velvia 50 35mm film to shoot to test my new canon eos 5 out prior to starting uni.
    Absolutely stunned with the results. This is the 1st time I had loaded a roll of film, let alone shoot film.
    All the images are as they were taken in the camera, but some of them have had a minor crop to straighten them.
    The weather was very over cast and kept spitting with rain, so the images are taken in a random order as kept nipping back into the old pool to keep dry

    HISTORY
    Weeds now flourish on the 2,440- capacity camp which has sat empty since 2008 when Pontin’s closed it “following a period of sustained operating lossesâ€￾.

    Landowner Northern Trust had pinned hope on developing the site for residential use, but following heated objections from residents the plans were withdrawn in January 2012 before they came before the development control committee.

    Residents feared the development would place a strain on schools and doctors’ surgeries, put more cars on the road and take a valuable tourism asset away from Hemsby.

    In a change of tack, the site has gone back on the market advertised for “tourism/ leisure usesâ€￾.
