Old penny slot machines are back on Southport pier

Today I decided to battle the strong Irish sea gales and walk around Southport and to the end of the pier. Since Clive Baker left Southport there has been nothing really at the end of the pier. But now I can report the old penny slots are back at the end of the pier. The new set up isn't as big as C...

Re: Open Days

I think he still has other slot machines on display at Botany Bay near to Chorley, Lancashire. I live in Southport - until recently we had an old penny slot museum on the pier. The guy has ...
