“Presented by researcher Richard Bond the talk will illustrate how the speaker has recovered the lost history of the park. It will include fascinating photos and maps, including a highly detailed 1881 map, which will show a rare example of the ornamental lake.
Ahead of the talk, a fascinating photographic exhibition, dating back to the official park opening in May 1912, in the foyer at Sale Waterside, continuing until Thursday, 28 March.
