I was there on holiday in 1972 and 1973 as a child have really fond memories of the swimming pool and the playhouse. Remember the old inn by the main entrance. Supposed to have been haunted! Real shame it's all gone now.

I worked in the pontinental bar which only served half's of beer. My supervisor was Doris and her son was a Bluecoat name of Johnny St Leger. Had some fabulous holidays there later on 1979/1982.

I worked in the pontinental bar in 1974. One of the bluecoats was johnny st.leger. I worked with his mam Doris.It was a great place to work. Sort to see it all gone.Sandra (nee Batey) Huddart.

I was there 75/6, security officer. Boss was john Simons I recall

hi I was on holiday here with a friend either 1975 or 1976 .there was a group on then but I carnt remember their name I thin one was called roy and one barry but carnt remember the others I think there was five in the group. I remember they wore pale blue trousers and red shirts. I may even have some photo somewhere also had some of other blue coats if anyone can remember this group or even know what happened to them I should love to know

hi Kathryn I worked there in 1972,73,74 I was a cashier use to go round cafes shops & bars,you won't remember me but you may remember my mate they nickname him Geronimo worked as a porter in the dining hall.just been to ocean edge caravan site so had a walk round the old site nothing there now all over grown.the company which bought the site went bust had some good memories sad to see it now

I have recently been back to morecambe on business,i went to look around the old camp at middleton towers the old bar is still there but it was strange looking at the new blocks of flats.Still parts of the old camp with rubble behind fences.I went in to morecambe for a drink the joiners arms is still there but the masons arms and the ship have changed names.We had some good times in those pubs,what a trip down memory lane.

Hi all!
My mum (SYLVIA) worked at Middleton towers as a Bluecoat from 19969-1972.. was her best years of her life!
Just wondering if anyone else worked there at the same time???
