    The Royal Arthur chalets are of the same size and shape as original single storey chalets, but completely built of modern brick. Are they original chalets that have been completely reclad, or are they new just built to the same shape and size as originals?

    Yes I know they are made of brick, but there are a few lines at Minehead where the walls are partially brick but which I believe to be original chalets (they even still have the original roofs). I believe those have just had brick added onto them, in the same way that the ground floor of the Minehead Nursery building has had some brick panels attached to it. However underneath the brick is still probably the original walls.

    What I'm wondering is if that could also be the case with the Royal Arthur chalets at Skeggy, although I would imagine they're actually new because everything about them looks completely new, I'm just not sure.

    I'll happily give anyone coming to Minehead for the 75th break a guided tour. Alternatively print off the historic camp map I made recently and use it for a self-guided tour!

    I am sure I remember seeing the memorial but didn't take a photo. This year there is this:

    Which is where I think the memorial was, just opposite the spa entrance. Looking under the base of the basked there is evidence of something else having been bolted to the ground in the same location.

    Anyway, the Royal Arthur apartments are these, I believe:

    The memorial is closer to the Skyline than the Royal Arthur chalets, and can be found in the path outside Reds.

    Yes, those are the Royal Arthur Apartments. As mentioned previously, they are disabled apartments and I've now stayed in them a couple of times. The chalets are very spacious, with a decent sized lounge and kitchen, and three bedrooms, though they do have a very 70s feel to them!
