Victoria Park, St James' End, Northampton
This series of large stone pieces, set into an area of rubberised matting, were provided many years ago as a climbing facility for youngsters in the playground area of Victoria Park. The park is situated within a mile of the town centre in the St James district of Northampton and provides a quiet retreat from the busy roads around it. Half of the park was gifted to the town by the Earl Spencer in 1898, making it the second oldest designated park in Northampton and later another 8 acres were purchased from the Earl in 1910/11, making a green space of 16 acres. Ahead are houses lining Spencer Bridge Road (part of the A428) The St Jamesí area, or more formally: St James' End (but known locally as Jimmyís End) has been administered as part of the city since 1900. St James' End is now in the Borough Councilís St James Ward.
