Re: Alton Towers Resort - Music and Videos

Hey, I'm attempting to create an Alton Towers Media collection, and I am aware that TowersTimes used to have a Media section with some rare stuff. I've tried to get the files via the Wayback Machine and Internet Archive, but they weren't saved. Could anyone who happens to still have the files pleas...

Re: Abandoned

Thanks for the clarity. I've been meaning to ask the park (or a staff member) for permission since I saw that gate open but I doubt they're gonna allow a random guest to enter. I know it was open in 2016 as I remember the gate entering from the Towers themselves being open, but it seems it has been ...

Re: Alton Towers Resort Quick Questions

Quick Question - is The Gardener’s Cottage still occupied by anything? I've seen modern items on counters through the windows and it seems as if it had been used recently, but I've yet to find out what.

Re: Abandoned

Hi, Quick Question for anyone who may be able to help: Is the Dovecote/Pidgeon Hole still accessible? I know the main entrance (from the bridge/tower going over the path below) is now gated, but I know of a gate that is usually left open near Woodcutters that leads into the woods where it presides. ...

Re: Abandoned

I've had this question for a while now and wanted to know if anyone may have an answer. Further down the pathway below the Swiss Cottage, past the Abandoned Toilets, is these steps that seemingly lead into the bushes. In April, I went down there and found a small parting in the bushes near the boggy...

Re: Abandoned

Yeah I saw it, seeing that video was the first time I had seen Cuckoo Arbour at all. Great video.

Re: Abandoned

So I did some mapping, and I saw that the path on the map is now blocked off - It's the one behind Rita's first turn - old UG Swinger site. I'll try and map out an accessible route. https://i.gyazo.com/b6b6d0aa3ee1e5181b9ff0972ee55041.jpg Also sorry for the bad drawing there - my image editor keeps ...

Re: What did you ride on your first visit?

I visited first when I was around 3, I think I must've done the Storybook Land/OMD Farm rides and CATCF.

Re: Abandoned

Hold on a minute, In the video I sent, I hopped a fence over to the pathway which led to the stairways behind the toilets. The 1960 Guidebook shows a place saying toilets next to the Swiss Cottage and above it a straight-ish pathway seeming similar to the pathway I was on. Is this a way there? https...

Re: Abandoned

Yeah, that's the problem with exploring the gardens, I've walked down old unused paths before and narrowly missed massive holes, cut my leg, and tripped over. It's best to be careful, take some plasters and a phone with you in case you get lost. When I visited the abandoned toilets last year I stupi...

Re: Abandoned

Hey, first of all, thanks for the directions, I found the block easily. Also, does anyone know where the abandoned nature trail in the Gardens is? The only site that mentions it gives very vague directions and only one photo is available. If anyone has some good directions or better yet a location t...

Forgotten History

Hi all, I wanted to create this topic to create a large database of all the forgotten history pieces of Alton Towers, such as the milestones around saying things like ,'To Alton Abbey, 2 miles.', and to see if we can find any new forgotten history amongst the bushes. I want to get as much informatio...
