"That was tremendous fun"

Mr Monkey approaching Silcock's Gallopers Mr Monkey looking at the Gallopers

Mr Monkey scampered off the pier and walked straight into Herbert Silcock's Golden Gallopers. This carousel was built in Kings Lynn in at the beginning of the 20th century. Mr Monkey made his humans clamber aboard, and rode around in circles for several minutes. The horses rise and fall as the carousel spins and Mr Monkey was delighted when he spotted the gearing that lifts and dropped them.

You can read about the Golden Gallopers (and the rest of the Silcock entertainment empire) at the Silcock Leisure website.
