Alton Towers is the oldest theme park in the UK, situated on the border of the village of Alton in the middle of the Staffordshire countryside. The resort encompasses the park itself, a waterpark, two hotels, an “extraordinary” golf course and a range of peripheral attractions. At the centre of the complex stands the neglected remains of a once-magnificent stately home, which has fallen into disprepair even as the modern park has developed around it.
This A6, perfect-bound booklet collects together the images, impressions and stories that make up Alton Towers. It is the second Liminal Residency book, produced in a numbered, limited edition of 300 and available at a flexible price of £5 or more. All proceeds will be used to fund future residencies.
Contributing researchers for this book include Gaynor Jones, Claire Fuller, SJ Bradley, Alison Powell, Julia Deakin, Eloise CC Shepherd, and Krishan Coupland.
