Fell Foot from the archive!

To help us look after the heritage of the park, we have been finding out about Fell Foot history.  The interesting information we’ve discovered so far is getting the project team excited about telling the story of Fell Foot in the project plans.

We are delighted to have a volunteer who will be helping us collect more stories and photographs from Fell Foot’s past. Please get in touch via fellfootpark@nationaltrust.org.uk if you have anything you can share with us!

Here are some of the lovely photographs we have found so far (though we don’t always have much information to go with the photographs!):

There are also some pictures of the old house which used to sit on the round lawn, plus photos of the characters who lived there! The house was demolished early last century (before the land was donated to the Trust). We will publish those photos in the next blog!
