I have a very vivid memory of being taken to the rose garden one winter in the early 60s from Ribblesdale nursery school when the pinnacle had water round it with fish in. The very cold weather had frozen the water and the teacher with us went to break the ice. Unfortunately for her she hit the ice a little too hard and her sleeve went in the water! It was giggles all round from us 4 year olds.

My Great Grandfather, Tom Greenwood was Parks superintendent for Clitheroe
My Great Grandfather Tom Greenwood was Parks Superintendent for Clitheroe. I remember being taken to the Rose Garden and being told he built it. I have an old photo of myself, my mother and sister taken next to the pond. I would guess it was taken about 1961.
