The former launderette building, which also had the storage and staff accommodation upstairs at one stage.

In this photo, Oyster Bay (formerly Exmoor Village) remains how the building to the left does not. When I worked here in 1999, this was the location where I got my uniform.

The entrance to the launderette, the insides was basic however, it was only there for you to get your clothes clean.

When I was on holiday at Butlin's , I had seen this room being used very little. I believe it was a small staff room for the use of customer service or to clean the room, however, I could be wrong.

View from the window showing you where it was once located.

Looking directly at the former location of where I use to work in 1999.

How m any people looked at this and said "ok, I will do as you request" ; )

The one area that I love to see in Butlin's Minehead are these double decker's. I would love to stay in one some day as they are one of the accommodation units that remain frozen in time from the Holiday Worlds era of Butlins. 
3rd June 2010
As you can see here, the balconies remain in the same design for over tens years (at this stage) showing you how they looked before the changes in 1999.
3rd June 2010
Within the chalets was the layout of the Butlin's Family Entertainment Resort. This design is from the last years of Rank in an attempt to recreate Butlin's into a new era that all can relate to.

These chalets were also one of the remaining few to have baths. The only other chalet design that has a bath (as of 2010) was the standard room only. This has changed now with the new build.

There is a lot of history that this road can tell from the start of Butlin's Minehead up to the current year (2021).

The old light system remained in place and worked in most places. It's silly to see however, this is another moment of time that is frozen for us all to see.
3rd June 2010
The view down the pathway where many campers in history have walked. The chalets at the end (single deckers) are now the new builds in Minehead Butlin's. 
3rd June 2010
These curtains are from the Butlin's Family Entertainment Resorts era. These represent the last owner, Rank and what designs they used in the chalets. 
3rd June 2010
This balcony would of see so many customers walking along it. With the old light system in place, it was a location of joy as you planned your night or day in Butlin's, no matter the era. 
3rd June 2010
I took this photo to show the old doors and the key locks that was used at the time.
3rd June 2010
You can see a shadow of the boxes near the balconies. These would of been the names of the block of chalets at the time.
3rd June 2010
The design of this chalets has not changed a great deal as we see the Holiday Worlds mix with the Family Entertainment resort eras. 
3rd June 2010
This area was slightly over grown due to the areas being hidden away. 
3rd June 2010
Amazing how a photo can help you feel the memories of a great time.
