Hello Everyone!

This is part two of three of the update and the final update from Alton Towers will follow in the next few days!

Be sure to drop by our dedicated area on TowersTimes for plans and construction updates and take a look at what our community are saying on our forum.

Looks like they have quite a few more lodges to put in.

Great photos MI7!

I must admit, I thought the Enchanted village would have each cottage nestled in the trees, but I guess I'm wrong! :D

Still time for planting... granted though, each cottage would be nestled amongst very little trees for the first few years if they do.

Only the lodge installation is currently underway, themeing etc hasn't been placed, so of course it won't look very fairly take like yet.

What I more meant is that the site is very compact and there doesn't look like there'll be much room for theming...

The plans show that they do intend to plant lots of vegetation so hopefully that'll add to the overall feel, although it may take a few years to properly establish. I'm saving judgement on the development until it's finished, as I think it does have potential to be a good addition.

Dan thanks for the reply but I know that from the topic above ;)

If you look half way down in 1 of the pictures there's a small building nestled in between 2 lodges that I mean

Reception for the Enchanted Village is located within the Crooked Spoon building.

The small building is a service hut. Three such huts are expected to be built across the site.

They'll be used as a distribution point for housekeeping - which will include clean and used linen (the used linen is transported offsite) and cleaning materials.
