Rowntree Park - New Gates


Rowntree Park is situated next to the River Ouse just south of York. It was given to the people of York by Rowntree and Company at the end of the First World War. It was gifted as a memorial to those members of the Company who gave their lives or suffered as a result of the war. The Park and the civic amenities provided within are still widely used by York residents today.

  3. I see what you mean Chrissy. The gates were made by Don Barker Ltd who describe themselves as an architectural and ecclesiastical blacksmiths so you may well be right!
