Open Air Museum of the Everyday

That forgotten piece of land that fills the void between Quarterhouse, The Old High Street and Grace Hill (otherwise known as Payers Park) is at the moment simply known as a car park, a dumping ground and a short cut you would avoid at night. But plans are in motion to develop this neglected patch into an area that is for the community.

To celebrate the new future of the Park we are going to be remembering the history and the present with a series of events.
