Fort Royal Park and Sidbury
Fort Royal Park and Sidbury
Fort Royal Park and Sidbury viewed from the top of the tower of Worcester Cathedral. The park on Fort Royal Hill is so named because of its historic significance, a fort or redoubt was built here to defend the city by the Royalist at the Battle of Worcester in 1651 however, when it was overrun by Essex and the Parliamentarian forces they were able to turn the guns on the city below. In April 1786 it was visited by the second and third Presidents of the United States of America, John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, who were keen to see the site they regarded as the place where democracy was effectively born. Sidbury is the site of one of Worcester's former gatehouses.
