Some more shots of 1973 Clacton On Sea.

FYI, you can no longer ride your motorbike onto the pier; the Ghost Train is long gone; the Steel Stella rollercoaster burned down only a few months after the show was filmed, and the Dolphinarium closed in the nineteen eighties. When I went last year, I sought out / trespassed into the abandoned Dolphinarium and found it slowly decaying, barred to the public but still intact, concrete seats,  half-empty pools and all, although I believe they have plans to do something with it this year.

Here's an aerial shot of how it looked a couple of years ago. I didn't take it: I don't like heights. The green square is the pool.

Thank you for your attention.
