Dawn breaks in Williamson Park Lancaster and the sky has its pastel hues behind the Ashton Memorial.

I had an early morning start in a golf event which meant passing through Lancaster at sunrise. The sky looked like it could get interesting so I did a slight detour and caught this shot before heading to the Golf Club. The sky unfortunately lost some of the cloud I had seen and the colours were lost, but hey it was worth the try.


Ashton Memorial, Williamson Park, Lancaster. Built in memory of Lord Ashton‘s second wife, Jessie, the memorial is a grand gesture to the town where Lord Ashton grew up and made a large part of his wealth.

Jessie Ashton died in 1904.

Standing around 35m (150ft) tall, the white Portland Stone structure, with copper clad dome, contrasts sharply with nearby woodland.

Ashton Memorial design
The Ashton Memorial was designed by Sir John Belcher and his partner John James Joass.

It officially opened on 24 October 1909 and is the centre piece to the 54 acres that make up Williamson Park.

Created from a disused quarry, Williamson Park provided work for many local residents who had lost their jobs due to the cotton famine caused by the American Civil War.

Dun Troddan is a broch, one of around five hundred to be found across mainly the north and west of Scotland. Brochs were built in the last centuries BC and the first centuries AD and were circular in plan, rising to a height of 13 metres or more: this is the height of the best preserved example, Mousa Broch in the Shetland Islands.
