Longford Park

Longford Park in Stretford is a special place to me. It’s a place of fond childhood memories, of running around in the grass, of playing hide and seek, of spending time with my grandparents. It’s a reminder of simpler times and whenever I go there, I recall those memories and am glad the park is still standing today.

As a historical landmark, Longford Park has great importance as well. It was the home of John and Enriqueta Rylands, two of Manchester’s wealthiest cotton merchants, who contributed a great deal to the city and its people. They lived in Longford Hall, a structure that speaks of the local history and architecture.

In this photo collection, I’ve captured various parts of Longford Park as a way to bring my memories into reality.
