    Talking The Very Wild West.. June 2018


    The Very Wild West



    Part of an ongoing "project" I guess I decided to have a quick stop off in here with the usual suspects on route to another few "targets" which was a success, so this was just a leg stretch really.
    I had always wanted to take a look here but undoubtedly never bothered, but alas I finally ticked off something which was on the cards for a few years, but indeed as always the case something better always turned up, so being not far it was worth the leg walk anyway.

    Closed down around 2009 I think and time has taken its toll, nothing personal now remains, no photographs of the happy families nothing in terms of this, but still it had a nice tranquil quality about it, that instantly made me like it more, CCTV signs on some buildings and in the woods, clearly has not prevented damage, but I think most is just general wear and tear of the elements.

    I probably enjoyed myself here more than I should but hey ho silver and all that horse play.

    On with the shots I captured which hopefully give you a sense of its current condition.






























































    Well the fun was had more coming soon

    I've seen earlier photos of this former theme park, but now its getting worse for wear and tear. In the second last photo those four men look like cattle rustlers, best to run them out of town.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.

    They were a wild bunch, but the brewery had to take on extra staff for the time they were here so while they're spending the towns wide open ��
