Full Description

The Green, for centuries part of the Borough's commons, was opened as a public park in 1886 funded by a sale of land to the Railway Company nine years before. It was originally entirely ringed by an iron fence supported on elegant iron bollards from Abell's foundry. Unfortunately most of them have been moved for use elsewhere. (1)
