Alton Towers entrance

Alton Towers is a theme park in the UK which exhibited many of the Space: 1999 models in a neglected corner of the park from 1982 to 1989. The exhibition was much smaller than Space City in Blackpool, and afterwards many of the models were found to be damaged or lost.

The external shot is by Martin Willey. The photos below were taken by Ian (all exhibits were behind glass, and the camera flash reflection is seen in these shots).
