The memorial clocktower.

The park was built on the site of a mill lodge,the water tunnels still exist today leading past the clock tower and into the river.A few years ago ‘Chewie’ an urban explorer entered the tunnels to take photographs of the construction,though somewhat spider infested the tunnels condition was a credit to the builders.
