Artist's Description

Number 8 of a series on Lancaster’s Williamson Park.
Autumnal scene of the lake and fountain in the grounds of the beautiful Williamson Park in Lancaster. The lake had fallen into a state of disrepair but has been refurbished recently and, with the fountain and the large waterfall (tumbling down the old quarry rock face) in the summer, is a real feature of the park.

The park itself was built with money from James Williamson Snr, the landscaping largely determined by the fact that this was where building stone was quarried for Lancaster. This has made the park an unusually interesting place to wander from the wide open grass lawns to the quiet glades and fern-clad dells. In the autumn season, the park is spectacular.
The views across Morecambe Bay to the Lake District and even the Isle of Man on a good day are superb and the grounds also hold a tropical butterfly house, mini-beast cave, a fine waterfall, lake and woods as well as the magnificent Ashton Memorial, built by James Williamson at the beginning of the 20th century.
They hold (very popular) open-air plays on the summer using the natural landscape of the park for the various scenes.
Anyway, if you want more here’s the Park’s web page

Thanks for looking,
