Egerton Lodge Memorial Gardens, Melton Mowbray, Leics.
Egerton Lodge Memorial Gardens, Melton Mowbray, Leics.
A section of Lady Wilton's Bridge, a stainless steel sculpture and an wooden summer house all feature in this picture. The Town Estate acquired this plot of land in 1929 for 500. A range of small ornamental gardens were developed over the years, and subsequently they became memorial gardens in honour of fallen local soldiers. The bank of the River Eye is less than 50 metres away beyond the summer house and Egerton Lodge Retirement Home - that sits on the park's north-easterly boundary - lies 150 metres away on the left .This modern stainless steel sculpture seems the antithesis of all the other items in the gardens. It is (was) unlabelled.
