I thought I would start with the lake not least because it will allow me to include one of almost the same spot taken over a century ago.
They date from 1906 and perfectly capture what the park once looked like.
Not that I want to short change Andy’s pictures which make me wish I had wandered down there myself.
And of course there is much more to the park for not only has it given untold pleasure to countless generations of people but has a rich history, including demonstrations and events stretching back into the 19th century.
