The Pontin's holiday park in Blackpool is nearing complete demolition after closing in 2009 due to falling visitor numbers, with the land being earmarked for a housing project. The Pontin's British holiday business was originally founded in 1946 by Fred Pontin, providing chalet style holiday accommodation and on site entertainment to visitors. Millions of Britons visited Pontins in it's heyday, being entertained by its famous Blue Coat hosts. (Photo by Christopher Furlong/Getty Images)
