Path through the park
In the early 1920s Higginson Park was threatened with a plan to develop riverside housing. A group of local men started a campaign to raise funds to purchase the land and save it from development. In 1926 the land was purchased and then presented to General Sir George Higginson a veteran of the Crimean War. He promptly gave the park to the town.
