I remember coming here as a kid, all of the funfair has been demolished, only the concrete bases still exist. The funfair closed on the 4/9/05, but the dodgems closed well before, from memory probably about 1995.
For more info on the funfair click here.

Nice! Suprised them cars are still there, I reckon they fetch a pretty penny!!

I bet there are, but access is a little bit of a issue lol.

I am so shocked that the vandals have not attacked the place TBH.

There are two more in the 'shed' lok under repair, and a load of tools there. TBH I would love one as a kinda ornament for my office (but the office isnt big enough and also getting one out would be a killer lol)

Even more than 2, there were loads, dodgems for everyone!

Anyhoo pretty similar pics (turns out dodgem tracks(?) only have 1 room.) but a few of mine...
