Local historian offers a glimpse into Whitby Park’s past

Ellesmere Port residents are being invited to take a glimpse into the history of Whitby Park with local resident and historian Dorothy Morgan.

Dorothy has been conducting free historical walks around the park periodically throughout the year, with the next one due to take place on Wednesday 31 October at 2pm, meeting outside Whitby Hall.

The walk will last around 1 hour and will guide people round the park, learning about the parks origins, its original designer Thomas Mawson and the story behind Whitby Hall.

They are free of charge and residents are advised to wear suitable footwear and a coat as the walks will go ahead regardless of the weather.

Further walks suitable for anyone with an interest in Whitby Park or local history will be held in the New Year and will be advertised on the parks notice boards.
