It also has a bowling pitch. I have seen people playing this but I don'[t know the rules. It looks like they roll balls from one side to the other diagonally. The objective? Who knows. But the grass on this pitch is so well maintained even my dad would be proud.
The picture of the metal bridge over the River Sow, which goes through the park, was built in commemoration of the accession of George V (grandson of Victoria) in 1910. It was completed in 1911 and has been in use for the last 103 years and looks like it will still be around 103 years from now. Old things are so common in the UK.
Also, as part of the park, is a small aviary with many exotic looking pheasants along with a few budgies, canaries, chickens, etc. to keep them company.
There is a pair of each type so that procreation can take its normal course. :)
Another unanswered question in my life.
Oh, and for lunch that day Mike took me to the Soup Kitchen. If that is what British Soup Kitchens are like I hope I eat in many more. :)
