A visit to East Park

Clock tower and flower beds

Work will soon begin renovating East Park, thanks to a Heritage Lottery Fund grant. The striking clock tower in the distance above will once again be getting a clock.


The bandstand is currently in a sad state of disrepair.

Camellia flower

Blooms on an impressive camellia bush by the lodge at the entrance.

The avenue

The avenue of mature plane trees forms a tunnel even when their leaves are gone. This view looks back towards the lodge, which is pictured below.

Patch of Danish scurvy grass

And finally: to disprove my recent posts which have been talking about Danish scurvy grass as a plant which is spreading only in thin strips along busy roads, there was a patch several yards across in East Park.
