Photo-a-Day (Friday, 23rd June, 2017)
Nice photo Mick. Greenery alongside a busy area, a place to relax.
Shade and Sunshine all in one pic. Lovely photo Mick.
That is one of a row of Beech Trees that lined the driveway to Bank House a mansion now demolished and the site now occupied by part of Tennyson Avenue.
Good on the eye picture Mick. Enjoyed your
Parbold going down.
9.13 The area includes two informal green spaces which front Wigan Lane. The largest, off Tennyson Drive, was formerly the site of Bank House, which appears on an 1894 OS plan as a grand residence. A footpath runs through the public space and is well used by local residents. Both spaces accommodate mature trees both appear to be popular amenity spaces used for dog walking/relaxing.
Copied from Wigan Lane Conservation Area Character Appraisal.
I remember seeing a photo of Bank House in one of the Past Forward magazines, though I can't remember which issue.
Happy memories of walking through Marylebone Park on the way to Marylebone School.
