Priory Park is a beautiful park with good facilities. We were there last Saturday to enjoy the music at the band stage which is absolutely free. Well done Jackie Wilson Says. The atmosphere was lovely and luckily so was the weather.

Our local park, well maintained and lots to see and do. It's the sort of park every town should have....play areas, wooded areas, museum, bandstand, free concerts, tennis courts, maze, secret garden and ponds. You could spend a whole day here in summer
