My granddaughter married in USA last October but arranged to have a family party and blessing in our home town. We assembled in the park on a lovely sunny afternoon at the Gotsedd stones and the couple received a blessing there. It felt very special.

So lucky to live two minutes walk from this historical park. it has some amazing features, the fountain being one, and the boating lake, complete with boats that bring back memories of my childhood. Well worth a visit.
