Andrew Simpson has done a lovely blog entry on his Chorlton History about the history of Fog Lane’s bandstand and the area around it, you can read the blog here.
We celebrate people writing about our blog and hope that more people will contribute to our website’s blog too if you have a story you want to share, or some news about the park, just email us or contact us through the website contact form and we will post it for you.
You can find out more about the Grass that is supposedly what Fog Lane Park is named after here. There is something fairly charming about a grass that is described as ‘woolly’ when it means a plans hairy texture.
Do you have a favourite bird, walk, plant or anything else in our park, tell us about it. We would ideally ask for around 500 words, but we can always do a gallery post if you just want to submit photos. We do reserve the right to edit stories just so they fit in a blog entry well.
