Creepy abandoned theme park with roller coaster, ghost train, water slide | Abandoned UK

Camelot Theme Park is an abandoned resort and theme park located in the English county of Lancashire. The park’s theme was the well known legend of Camelot, and the park decor incorporated pseudo medieval elements. It was located on a 140-acre (0.57 km2; 0.22 sq mi) site near the village of Charnock Richard, 3 miles (4.8 km) west of Chorley.

One of the rollercoasters can be seen from the M6 near the Charnock Richard Services. The site was owned by The Story Group, and was operated by Knights Leisure. The park featured many rides, taking a target audience of families and younger children, however the park also boasted numerous thrill rides and roller coasters, including Whirlwind (a Maurer Söhne spinning coaster), Knightmare and Excalibur.

The park was featured in a 1994 episode of Sooty & Co., in which presenter Matthew Corbett takes Sooty, Sweep and Soo there. During the season of 2012, Camelot suddenly announced that they would not be reopening for the season of 2013.

Empty Underground Station – Warren Street

Before I went up to London I took a moment to think about what shots I wanted to get. I did plan to go up to Tower Bridge but as per usual over slept and ran out of time. Another shot I wanted was looking down an empty underground train but never got the opportunity.

A shot I really wanted but never thought I would get being the week before Christmas was an empty underground stop.

Spent the day uptown as had a works Christmas do to attend in the evening and wandered around town beforehand taking some photos. Mainly down by the river as the night lighting was very nice. Gets dark so quick this time of year.

As you can expect the underground is packed before Christmas with the shoppers and the workers. Im not keen on people in my pictures as it distracts the photo and I really wanted the train pulling into the station. I noticed there was a train directly behind the first one so I let the first one take them away and was able to get a shot with just a handful of passengers.
