Stamford Park


(Click photo for larger version. Press Back button to return here.)

Today's photo shows the duck pond in Stamford Park, on the border between Ashton and Stalybridge.

The park was originally the grounds of Highfield Hall, which was situated at the top of the grassy slope, just left of the centre of the picture. In 1873 the grounds were opened as a municipal park shared between Ashton and Stalybridge. Highfield House itself was demolished in the 1950s. The park is shortly to have a major facelift.

"Stamford Park" is my contribution to this week's "My World" feature. Please check out the other blogs participating in this week's My World.

  3. Looks like a beautiful English spring day. Duck ponds and willow tree, what could be better.
