History: The Return to Nature c1976
This newspaper cutting from 1976, explains the early work to reclaim the industrial wasteland around Telford including the start of the development of Dale End Park at Coalbrookdale. Photos include Children Sitting on a Bench at Spring Village, Dale End Park Under Construction and a Portrait of Keith Hadley, Chief Planning Officer.
One interesting comment was about Spring Village. The pool was used for making cannons in the Seven Years War. Anyone have more details on this?
One thought on “History: The Return to Nature c1976”
Telford is rapidly losing its green feel with endless housing and development of remaining green spaces.
The quality of life is thus declining with it. Madness when one thinks of the impending environmental crisis but inevitable with net immigration running at 300,000 per year.
