West View Park
West View Park is a late 19th-century public park created on the site of a disused quarry, with distant views to the Pennine hills. Features include formal gardens, a terrace and an early-20th-century war memorial.
Two local businessmen, Mr H C McCrea and Mr E Robinson, proposed the creation of a park on Highroad Well Moor in around 1894. The Parks Committee Minutes do not refer to the design of the park; it is implied that the benefactors, McCrea and Robinson, undertook responsibility for the park's layout. In July 1896 the park was opened.
