Very good pictures there. I love to see old pictures of the park :D It looks like a spooky place even all them years ago. I keep saying this as i dont think Alton Towers use it to there full pertenchual (sp) but you can see how good the towers look yet when it comes to Halloween not alot is done,They have this huge spooky towers yet they dont use them to there advantage enuff. Any way great pictures and i hope we get some more good ones like that sme time soon. :D

Just found another picture on that site - Clicky

EDIT: Kaycee

Changed long link to a short one. :)

Staffs Past Track actually came to my high school and used my class as a test to see how the site was before it was opened. I think it's great for any locals; it even has some old pictures of my tiny village on!

Regards,

Started off in what way? As a site? As a stately home or as an amusement park?

i too have pics but only from 1991-1995. they are all of the old ice shows which i used to skate in with the one and only henry hound. i actually used to dress in the costume character of henry hound when we did the parade at 3 o clock every day around the park.

Gathered that, seeing I took it on 1st August 1987 with my treasured Kodak Star 110 camera!

Share and share alike, that's what I say!

Aww!

Such a sweet photo Stevie! Proud Daddy with his little Altonettes!

You look like you're about 5 in the photo, which would have meant it was taken between 1988 and 1990, over at the edge of ye olde coaster corner.

Thanks for taking the time to upload the photos, they're always much appreciated...

:D
