Abandoned Theme Park Where An Army Of Dismembered Dummies Lies Rotting In An Overgrown Wasteland

Discarded in the grounds of an abandoned theme park, this mannequin graveyard is an eerie sight to behold. Spread across wasteland and surrounded by woodland, the former amusement park in Lancashire is where dozens of old mannequins – some dating back to the 1960s – have found their final resting place.

The photographer will not reveal the exact location of the abandoned amusement park, but it is believed the pictures were taken at Camelot near Chorley. The theme park shut its doors in 2012, but the land has not yet been redeveloped and the grounds are still filled with rusting rollercoasters and broken-down rides. A mixture of male and female figures also lie along the mud and grass, some with limbs missing and decay on the faces and hands, giving them a sinister look.

Photographer Andre Govia, who took the haunting pictures, told Daily Mail: “As I walked around the grounds the dead rides and broken windows gave a melancholy atmosphere to a place that was once full of enjoyment and fun.”
