Williamson’s Park, Lancaster

We held an event at the Ashton Memorial, Williamson’s Park in Lancaster on Sunday night. What a fantastic, iconic venue. The structure is can be seen from all around the area and is a landmark which many will have seen, but not known what it is. The structure was built as a folly by industrialist […]
