Abandoned Spirit of the West - St Columb - August 2014

(Site visited August 2014)

One of the more sketchy explores we have been on that's for sure!

Though this one has been covered quite allot in the past, when we were down in the area for a holiday we


couldn't resist checking it out for ourselves.

The park was closed in 2009 after its attempt at bringing a taste of the american wild west to the south coast, Now nestled in a wooded area surrounded by a luxury resort the old park decays away as a real life ghost town.

After the popularity of this site on the internet enticed various other explorers to take a look its clear the resort has tightened security, Many of the buildings are under lock and key and warning signs to 'stay out' are abundant, I would be telling a lie if it wasn't one of the most heart pounding explores we have ever done. I could of spend hours here as their was just so much to see, but after a very rushed 45 mins of furiously snapping pics and footage my nerves could take no more and we slipped out of the metal fencing with only a few strange looks from the grounds keepers as we casually tried to blend in with the very up market resort clientele.

Plans for the site are as yet unknown but i would advise extreme caution if anyone was to try visiting this site, i have a feeling the resort would come down quite harshly on anyone they did ever catch out!

RISK FACTOR - 9/10

Is this that place the owners kept a secret for years, somewhere to play cowboys south of the Thames(Kent)?

He's still a bloody time traveller, lol.

Great report mate, they do seem to have gone a bit crazy with the signage.

God that isn't the half of it! i swear they got a bulk buy deal on 'keep out' signs, they were bloody everywhere!:eek:

This was where I thought you meant. http://www.laredo.org.uk/loc.html
Loredo Western town. The owners still keep the location a secret it appears. Some years back Loredo was featured on a regional TV program, then I found it on Google earth but did not note the coordinates

I don't know the site but it sounds to me like you were a bit too cautious with all the 'keep out' signs that are around. It's hardly the most high profile derp, at worst you might get shouted at by secca. Nothing to be afraid of from what I can see
