Holmes Park Recreation Ground, Luddendenfoot

 Holmes Park is a recreation ground that sits between the Rochdale Canal and River Calder to the east of Station Road, Luddendenfoot. The park was opened in 1932 and features a children's play area, football pitch, gardens and woodland walking area. The park is also home to the Luddendenfoot War Memorial which was moved here in the 1950's from the Mount if Remembrance, that still stands on Burnley road today although is now overgrown and abandoned.

There are a total of 11 pictures that were taken in the park on the 20th August 2016 using a Nikon d3300 SLR camera. They can be seen here, on Flickr and Clickasnap.
