SP1579 : Gateway to Malvern Park

taken 8 years ago, near to Solihull, Great Britain

Gateway to Malvern Park
Gateway to Malvern Park
Malvern Park was laid out by the then Urban District Council in 1926 on land partly forming part of the estate of Malvern Hall and partly purchased from local farmers (Malvern Park Farm). The gateposts date from that year; the gates, like so much municipal ironwork, were requisitioned for scrap in the 1939-45 war and never replaced. In the background can be seen Joseph Boehm's fine equestrian group of the SP1579 : Horse and Tamer.

This postcard from the late 1940s shows the gateway as it used to be, surrounded by a luxuriant herbaceous border LinkExternal link
