HISTORY: Williamson Park was laid out on the site of disused
quarries and moorland. Some development began during the
Cotton Famine of the 1860s, but large-scale development only
began during the 1870s when James Williamson (Senior) paid to
have the landscape developed to the designs of Mr Maclean of
Castle Donnington. James Williamson (Junior) handed the park
over to Lancaster Corporation in 1881.
