The Clacton Twister

The Twister ride on Clacton Pier

I used to love this ride as a kid. Aged nine or ten or eleven, we used to go down every summer, and after a day spent on the beach we’d send ourselves dizzy spinning around in this and the waltzers before heading for home via the fish and chip shop.

I was testing cameras yesterday, so I went back to revisit some old haunts, and the Twister is still in its rightful place, over to one side at the front of Clacton Pier. If I hadn’t had my bags with me, I might have been tempted to give it another go.
