Wellington Park
Looking towards the entrance shown in ST1320 : Park entrance and Beech Grove, Wellington across the eastern corner of the park, which was opened 2 May 1903, and owes its existence to the generosity of cloth manufacturers Messrs Fox Bros & Co, owned by a family of leading Quakers and noted philanthropists. "Fox Bros appointed Robert Veitch & Sons of Exeter to design and layout the park, the landscape scheme being provided by F W Meyer (d 1906), landscape gardener to the nursery, who was also responsible for designing parks at Devonport, Exeter and Poole."
