The April History Workshop

A View of Towneley Hall by George Barret (1728 - 1784)The History Group workshop on Saturday April 13th looked at what makes Towneley special. The group listened to Sarah Law’s experiences of researching the Park’s 18th century history and how it is possible to see physical evidence in the Park today of the changes from that period.

Maureen Frankland described how much she was enjoying finding out more about changes that have taken place at Towneley in the 20th century. She emphasized that what was most important about the project was the involvement of the community and the sharing of knowledge about Towneley Park.

The project’s main deliverable is still a history leaflet but the workshop was also introduced to the topic of geo-caching and how this recreational activity could be another way of enhancing the visitor’s experience of Towneley. Find out more about geocaching on National Trust land at http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/visit/activities/geo-caching/ .

Hopefully there will be more about geocaching at Towneley in this blog in coming months.

I live on the edge of Towneley Park and am a member of the Friends of Towneley Park. A history of Towneley Park research group has recently been started and this blog has been started to allow research members to make information more widely available and hopefully to get comments from people with memories of the park.
