Nosey Park-er

Cool. The City Council website now has a map of some £2m of prospective improvements for the wonderful Burslem Park. Despite the bad press, the council has done a very decent job of revitalising our parks, considering their previous state of decay.

There's also a fledgling Flickr group dedicated to the life and work of the park's planner Thomas Mawson - other commissions of his included Hanley Park, the garden at Wightwick Manor, and Brockhole Garden in the Lake District. More on him here and here...
