On March 7, we welcome Dan Elsworth, of Greenlane Archaeology to present The History of Ford Park. Superficially Ford Park seems like any other Victorian gentleman’s villa. However, its history goes back much further. The stories of its inhabitants are entwined with the history of Ulverston, its industries and institutions. The history of the estate is explored in the context of Ulverston’s growth and how the two developed together, including how it became an important part of the local community in the 20th century.
