Brief Description

Planting includes a wide path with hedging and a number of trees that run east/west in the north of the park. Shrubbery is planted around the perimeter of the park, which is otherwise largely grassed.

History

Weavers Fields commemorates the important silk and textile industry established in the area in the 17th century following the arrival of the Huguenots fleeing from persecution. The area was badly bombed and the park was laid out after World War 2, predominantly for sports activities but with some planting.
