The Conservatory in 2017
For an airel view of the Conservatory please go to this link.
Time & the weather has taken it's toll on this unique stucture. The ironwork is rusting inside and out, many of the glass panes are broken, the woodwork is rotten and most of the tropical plants are tightly packed and have outgrown their 'home'. The conservatory is now closed to visitors.
We want to transform the Conservatory back to its former glory and establish this very fine and locally loved building once more as the centre piece and focal point of the outstanding Corporation Park. Many local people who live in the area and people who have moved out of the area have very fond memories of the park and the Conservatory. Mr Wayne Hemingway who grew up in Blackburn was recently in town and ran through every nook and cranny of the park. He said 'the Conservatory is indeed very beautiful, the park is looking magnificent and the town can be very proud of what the supporters group and others are doing to ensure that Corporation Park retains its beauty'.
