no chap, the only time ive been was about 18months ago, i wouldnt mind going back and getting a proper look. it well secure as far as car ascess so pikey's shouldnt be a problem, i think if you check on a map that a public footpath runs through, they dont like people using it but if its marked on the map they can do anything about it.

That's so sad - we used to go to the Shire Horse Centre every year as kids. Couldn't give a monkeys about the big horses with fluffy feet but I loved that death slide! Was it too rotten to climb inside? Thanks for sharing your pictures!

I'm definitely going to have a little mooch around this one - anyone wanna join me?

count me in if you go for another mooch.

i have a pile of pictures somewhere from my visit there as a kid and i was addicted to the free fall slide, it was the time of shell suites and remember the friction burning holes in them lol

let me know if you decide to go

Great pics though, did you have a play on all the indoor things?

Don't think there are pikeys there. Possible the caravans are the remainders of the film crews that used the site for an upcoming film. We found no Gypsies when we went there. two caravans, on tourer, one static. both all shut up and curtains closed even mid afternoon. Place is all padlocked up.
