An opportunity to visit two contrasting historic sites in North Huddersfield, both still used by community members Greenhead Park is a classic Victorian town park, restored in 2010 by Kirklees Council, with assistance from the Heritage Lottery Fund. After coffee in the restored conservatory we will be led on a guided walk by David Griffiths, author of its' history, around its’ obvious and some hidden features. After lunch we will visit Clem’s Garden CIC which is a social enterprise, run entirely by local volunteers. The group works together to grow and sell flowers, supporting local charities and community projects with their profits. Clem’s Garden is based in the grounds of Briarcourt, which was designed by Edgar Wood in Arts & Crafts style in 1894.The owners have agreed that our group can visit the ground floor rooms. Striking features include the main oak staircase, decorated plaster ceilings, the inglenook fireplace in the dining room and a painted frieze in the morning room by Staithes Group artist, Frederick Jackson.
