A new book which charts the centuries-long history of Alton Towers site has been released by an enthusiast.
Entitled ‘Tales from the Towers’, it was written by the Theme Park Tourist website founder Nick Sim during a recent battle with cancer.
The 327-page book features extensive information about the Staffordshire resort before and during its time as a theme park.
Sim has been a regular visitor to the park over the years and said: “At some point during one of my regular visits, I began to realise what an extraordinary story must lay behind Alton Towers.”
The book contains a considerable level of research and interviews, including contributions from veteran ride designer John Wardley.
It is now available in paperback and digital versions on the Amazon website.
