Longton Park (Queens Park) 21-04-2019

Here is some short video’s we took during our visit to Longton Park aka Queens Park on 21st April 2019. The videos are some of the wild life you can see when you visit the park, specifically the ducks, there is a large lake and you can expect to find lots of ducks on this lake.

For those who don’t know Longton Park it is also known as Queen’s Park, is famous for its trees, horticulture and lakes. It has a very individual character and is one of the city’s heritage parks. It houses a range of buildings including the clock tower and three bowling pavilions, and lots of wide open spaces, which are great for a day out with the family.

Alton Towers – The Towers

North Staffs TV took some video and still images of The Towers at Alton Towers. You can view them in the two video’s below.

The Towers are the ruins of Alton Towers stately home and are the source of the park’s name. They belonged to the Talbot family as a stately home until 1924 and largely designed by Augustus Pugin, also noted for his work on the Palace of Westminster.[ The Towers are now in a state of disrepair following decades of neglect. The ruins are open to the public during most of the open season. However, some areas are closed off as part of a £1.1 million project in place to restore the oldest parts of the Towers. Key areas of The Towers include the banqueting hall, the chapel, conservatories, and Her Ladyship’s Gardens.
