Landcroft Picture Services: 3 Butlins Minehead

The third in our occasional series: this has been requested by Davy H who asks, "Do you have any pictures of Minehead Butlins? I went there when I was six - in 1971. I joined the Beaver Club and everything..." Well Davy, I don't have anything Beaver related, but here's three ladies on a canoe. "Butlins Holiday Camp in Minehead holiday resorts in Britain. Having fun paddling in a pool June 1962"

I also have a picture of The Beatles helping a little girl off the train in Minehead in March 1964, but I'm sure no one wants to see that...

Which reminds me of when a friend went to a fund-raiser in a Purley scout hut. A display on the wall read 'Beavers are great!' How very true.

Too many jokes on this post/comments board! I'm afraid I'm going to have to go and have a lie down with a hob nob.

What a shame you could not find any Beaver pics, yet this will have to do. By 1971 they had a monorail too. It was the most extraordinary thing I had ever seen x
