I thought I would share some Vintage Images of the Under Gardener’s Lodge and of course, ‘Our back garden’.
Lodge and Snow
People coming into the Park – though this is the top entrance, via Granville Road.
The park was officially opened by Queen Victoria in 1897, when she also came to official open Sheffield’s new Town Hall. Her visit coincided with national celebrations marking her Diamond Jubilee Year. It was the first visit of a reigning Sovereign to the city. The Royal procession entered Norfolk Park by the Belle Vue gates , which are the gates at the side of the Lodge, and drove along the new road, which is now our Avenue of Lime Trees , then called the “Queen’s Drive,”. She was met at the top of the hill, by hundreds of children.
