Sir William Brass
Donated a turret from the Houses of Parliament to his Clitheroe 'seat' and it was placed in the Castle gardens.
For decades it was in a beautiful rose garden. In the 1960s the turret was surrounded by a pond to 'keep it safer'.
Now it is in a wilderness of gravel, but is to be refurbished. It is known as the 'Pinnacle Project'
This was taken before the area was 'laid bare'.
Only a B/W photo but hopefully it gives an impression.
Beds of roses with climbers gracing the garden walls.
The water around the pond used to be crystal clear, with a couple of small fountains.
