In 2001 whilst visiting Filey in Yorkshire I was walking my dog along the beach towards Primrose Valley when I went in search of the remains of the old Butlin's holiday camp where as an 18 year old art student I had worked in the summer holidays of 1968.

The camp was closed 1983, and work commenced on its demolition in 1989. When I visited in 2001 there was still plenty of evidence of what had once been a holiday camp, including the chalets, fountains and remains of the outdoor and indoor pools.

The photographs were all take on my first digital camera a Nikon Coolpix 990 3.5 megapixel camera.

Wow. I bet those walls were paper thin. I bet you could hear EVERYTHING!

Loving the archive photos pixelarte.
Interesting to see how cheaply constructed and poorly insulated the buildings were.
