IMG_0809Parkinson’s Park has always been ideal for sledging – ranging from the easy to the difficult slopes.

Christine King has sent us an interesting historical photo of sledging in the Park in the 1980’s, when the lower slope was less overgrown.   This picture is taken by the side of the bottom copse, and you can see the gardens of Crompton Parkinson laid out,  with Greenshaw Terrace behind.

Another sledging post here, but this time on the steep slope at the other end of the Park.
