Mid 60's at AltonTowers

These pictures have been shared very kindly by Sue Riddell (nee Griffiths) from a family visit to Alton Towers in 1964. This picture shows Sue with the Bandstand in the background where it also seems people were maybe gathering during some sort of musical display.

 

This picture features Sue on a carousel type ride in the fairground area.

 

We see a scene in the gardens here. It seems that the area below where the picture was taken would be Le Refuge.

 

Here is a recent picture of the above.

 

Here we see Sue in front of the fountain at the front of the Orangery. We can see 2 domes of the Grand Conservatories in the background.

 

Now a recent picture of the above.

 

Now an even older one from a different angle:

 

This one was taken inside the Ingestre Stable buildings aka the Tavern area.

 

A recent view of the above.
