Shillinghill Park and Gardens
Shillinghill Park and Gardens
(From an information board in the park) 'The park and gardens were laid out and built by the town's Shillinghill Residents Association which began in 1999 on the site of a quarry seam. The project took many hours of hard labour over the period of three years - and is still ongoing - by residents as young as three years of age to many retired folk well into their seventies. Three months of work in the early stages involved lifting stones off the site and five large pits were dug to bury tons of rock and large boulders'

The plaque on the cairn reads: 'This park was created by Shillinghill Residents Association. Opened by Cllr. A Anderson 7th September 2002'
