The Lost World of Longford Park


Never one to miss an opportunity to learn more, I plan to go to "Lost World of Longford Park" tomorrow at  7.15 in Trafford's Local Studies library in Sale.

“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. 

Anyone wanting more details about the talk or Longford Park can contact Trafford Local Studies by e-mail trafflocals@trafford.gov.uk, via Twitter @TraffordArchive or by ringing 0161 912 3013"

It follows on from the excellent exhibition Richard staged at Chorlton Library earlier in the year.
