    Default Pontins Holiday Village, Norfolk, Sept. 2013

    Don't quote me on this, but I believe this site to be 5/6 years old. Online reviews slated this place when it was open. Unsure why it closed, maybe due to so many bad reviews? But I think it closed 2 years after the recession. The site is huge, and the costs of running such a place must have been sky high. I read somewhere the site is worth £43 million. Apparently there was talk of redeveloping, probably into housing, most likely into a 24hr Tesco or Asda lol! But local reaction wasn't good, and it never went ahead.

    Now left to stand, it's in surprisingly good shape. Considering the fact there are literally hundreds of unoccupied rooms, there's literally no sign of graffiti, and minimal drink / drug use. Only found one room with a few docked out joints, that's it. If this was in somewhere like Sheffield, it would be full of cans, needles and graff! In short, the closest I've found to Chernobyl Very enjoyable chillaxed derp!

    Here's some pics - soz bout the borders, left setting on by mistake!


    One of many


    paths all overgrown - looks like the middle of Somalia! (minus bullet holes :P)
