Allan Park, Sowerby Bridge.

Allan Park is a small public park built in to woodland and the hillside of Norland giving outstanding views of Sowerby Bridge and the nearby area. The park was opened in 1922 in the former grounds of Allan House which is now a health centre and offers limited facilities with a small children's playground and a bowing green being about the main of them. The Rishworth Branch line Scar Head Tunnel runs directly underneath the park and some of the many woodland paths that run through it lead to the top of the eastern tunnel portal. The park is easily accessed as its entrance sits opposite the Jubilee refreshment rooms and former coal hoppers at Sowerby Bridge Railway Station.

These pictures were taken in May 2016 using a Nikon d3300 DSLR Camera.
