    Some nice memories there. Visited a few of those as a very fortunate child whose eldest sister, her then husband and family took me most places with them. North Wales resorts and Weston-Super-Mare being prime spots for weeks away. Happy days.
    It’s obvious how car ownership has increased.

    Pretty much all still there. Well, there's an entirely new pier since the old one burnt down. Fountain still there but the area around been turned into a sort of picnic area. To the left of it the beach lawns are still there and still go the full length of the prom up to the golf course, about 3/4 a mile i reckon. But there has also been some developments to the immediate left, a restaurant/bar/cafe/gelato parlour type complex, a kids rope adventure playground type thing with a cafe in it and a weston eye wheel for half the summer. The miniature railway has closed though (edit: seems there may be a new one in place).

    marty21 One on one? You're crazy.

    I was going to mention WSM, that was where we were taken as kids - maybe once a year when Dad could be arsed - he'd spend most of the time there in the pub whilst mum 'entertained' us. The 70s:thumbs:
