The Stafford Orchard in flood. 1930s

Floods in the Stafford Orchard. This photograph has been taken from where the existing bridge is on School Lane. Willow trees now dominate this view.

The Dower House can be seen in the distance. Wright's mill complex is on the left. To the right is a picket fence. This was actually the boundary between two separate pieces of land. This boundary survives to this day as the path across the park. Up until 2010 the areas to the left and right of the path were owned by different groups, although they both appeared to comprise the park. Believed to be pre-1944.
