Detail: The Park was once the site of the house and gardens of Sir Isaac Holden, who was an inventor, manufacturer and Member of Parliament. He is responsible for the building of the caves and grottoes that you can still find in the park, as well as his original summerhouse, which has been restored. Only the portico remains from the original house and the site of the house is now instead a well-kept bowling green.
