For an airel view of the Conservatory please go to this link.
Time & the weather has taken it's toll on this unique stucture. The conservatory is now closed to visitors.
We want to transform the Conservatory back to its former glory and establish this very fine and locally loved building once more as the centre piece and focal point of the outstanding Corporation Park. Many local people who live in the area and people who have moved out of the area have very fond memories of the park and the Conservatory. Mr Wayne Hemingway who grew up in Blackburn was recently in town and ran through every nook and cranny of the park. He said 'the Conservatory is indeed very beautiful, the park is looking magnificent and the town can be very proud of what the supporters group and others are doing to ensure that Corporation Park retains its beauty'.

The Park Memorial Gardens
100 years ago the First World War ended, and a new world began. The example and experience of those who lived through it shaped the world we live in today.
Everyone is touched in some way by the First World War and the generation who lived through it.
The Memorial Garden in Corporation Park remembers over 3,000 soldiers who came from Blackburn. Below are some of the commemoration plaques.
Many of Blackburn's residents have their forbears names commemorated in the memorial plaques. Cheryl Omalley's Grandfather John Lavelle (named above) was killed at the Battle of Arras on April 11th 1917. And at the third Ypres, Cheryl's Great Uncle, Benjamin Leaver (named above) was killed at Zonnebeke, Passchendaele on the 9th of October 1917. Both men died in France and were buried where they fell.
