A pilgrimage to Crinkley Bottom

Although Noel Edmonds’ Crinkley Bottom theme park inexplicably closed in the 90s, many true fans continued to return to their Somerset mecca for decades to come.

You could walk right into the ruins of Dunblobbin, and sit on the remains of a National Treasure’s funny spotty furniture. The abandoned rides were awe-inspiring like Pompeii.

The whole site is now sadly returned to nature, but it takes more than a farmer in a bulldozer to stop the heartfelt tributes to Noel’s side-splitting icon.
