Using Google Maps or Google Earth, we can see Butlin's Minehead over the years. Below are photos from Google Earth showing you a lot of details of the former campsite and giving you a great insight into the former Butlins camp.
Each photo has a copyright credit under each one. This is done in accordance with the rules specified at this link. I am thankful to be able to show these screenshots, which were taken using Google Earth (click on these words to see more) for historic education.
This building used to have first aid and offices with a go-kart area at the far end where the go-kart track was.
The go-karts used to be at the far right-hand side, you can see a shutter door. Offices are towards the left where the first aid was.
Known as Plantation Quay, you can see the building with the former location symbol (the red circle).
The building at the front was built for the use of day visitors and as a use of as a shop. It was not that big within the building and gave people out in the town a view of what Butlins offers.
The building was removed from the front of the camp as work started with the demolishment of the single-deck accommodation into the new chalets. The logo on the front also changed.
The works continued on the new development however the cabins were removed from the former go-kart track.
The development of the new chalet village had finished. Butlin's reinstated the fencings and placed potted plants to help with the presentation. However, the temporary road still remained.
Not much had changed during the last year with only an increase in the large rocks across the temporary road.
The fencing was removed on the left-hand side and replaced with flowers. That means that only the lamp post remains from the Butlins Holiday Worlds era - known as Somerwest World
The entrance to the left-hand side was used for visitors to gain entry to the resort. There would be a welcome Butlins notice board with a wonderful flower display on the left-hand side.
The main entrance had the logo changed with the welcome board removed. The flower display, which has been on the left hand for many years is removed. The main flower unit in the middle of the two roads is also removed and replaced as a road.
The entrance does not change a great deal in one year, the day entrance board still remains however, no welcome board is shown.
The welcome board reappears at the entrance, however, the day visitor board is removed. Not much more is done with the entrance this year.
A border has been put around the flowers where the security camera is.
The flowers come back to the left-hand side once again and the main entrance is given a coat of paint to make it more welcoming.
This is the second entrance to Butlin's Minehead. You can see the Blue Skies building and welcome sign.
The second welcome sign has been changed, not much has been done since 2009.
The entrance has been given a change as the Blueskies is renamed to Bayside Apartments. Flags are added and some amazing flowers are planted.
The flowers are showing off the beauty of Butlins with added planted pot put on the grass on the right-hand side. The welcome sign is there however, this picture just cuts it out.
The roundabout just before Butlin's has had a Butlins logo on it for a very long time.
The wonderful flowers were removed and the round about became just plain grass with the Butlins stone still in place.
A small area of plants has been added with an additional sign.
The Butlin's stone has changed however, the roundabout remained as it was in 2015 without the additional sign added.
Sign showing the Blue Skies building
The sign was changed in 2014 and 2015 to the new design with Blueskies now added on a list.
