Once a cornfield, Seears Park is now a lovely place for a stroll. It was bequeathed in perpetuity to the people of the borough by Mr and Mrs John Seears, who had lived nearby in Quarry Park Rise, and opened formally as a park in 1934.

Plinth at entrance to Sears Park

Above: Plinth at the entrance to Seears Park, made from Portland stone and carved to resemble two outward facing heads. It used to be topped by a drinking fountain with a statue of a boy, and bear an inscription thanking the Seears for their generous gift of the park however, over the years, bits have disappeared, leaving only the plinth standing
