Park entrance and Beech Grove, Wellington
On the left is one of three similar entrances to Wellington Park, "a roughcast, clay-tiled archway and oak gates, erected, like the other park buildings, by the local firm Messrs Follett Bros (Wellington Weekly News 1903)" LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) . On the right is Beech Grove: "The site donated to the town by Messrs Fox Bros included, on its north-east boundary, a row of mature beech trees, after which the adjacent road was named Beech Grove. It has been suggested that the trees and road mark the course of a former drive to The Court, a C16 mansion which stands to the south-east of the park".
