Fog Lane Park
Purchased in 1926 by the town planning committee, Fog Lane Park was one of the first public parks. It is said that Fog Lane Park earned its name from a grass, commonly known as Yorkshire Fog, which still grows throughout the park. There is an area dedicated to the growth of wild flowers, these attract wildlife such as butterflies, dragonflies and a large selection of insects. The park has a variety of trees and shrubs, including redwood, silver birch, laburnums and flowering crabs as well as a number of unusual specimens such as hornbeams, alders, poplars, Norway maple and Indian beans, which have reached maturity.
