History

The park opened in 1983 and has been operating seasonally since then. The park is based on the story of 'Camelot, King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table'. The local area was once covered by the largest lake in England Martin Mere, which was first drained in 1692 by Thomas Fleetwood of Bank Hall in Bretherton. (The story is that Sir Lancelot's parents King Ban of Benwick and his queen Elaine escaped to Lancashire from their enemies in France. Elaine went to help King Ban who had fallen and put Lancelot down on the shore of the lake, by where he was abducted by nymph Vivian who vanished into the waters of the lake with him. Vivian brought up Lancelot and when he went to King Arthur's court he was knighted as 'Sir Lancelot of the Lake'.) Martin Mere has been locally known as the 'Lost Lake of Sir Lancelot' following the myth.
The three of us had a lot of fun wandering around in the park for the best part of nearly 3 hours until security turned up. Although the were very helpfully waving torches around to alert us to their presence, luckily we were about to start packing up to head home so we ducked over a wall and lay low for a few minutes till we had a clear run for the exit, the secca seemed to be concentrating on scouring the rollercoasters for us... too late :rolleyes:
