The Victorian Conservatory

St Georges Park was established in 1861, and in 1864 the lands around it were subdivided and sold off, to create funds for the further development and maintenance of the park. One of the developments was this conservatory, built to house tropical plants. It is a bit tatty these days, but remains a beautiful structure.

  1. I continue to enjoy these little strolls down memory lane! Thanks for risking life and limb to provide them. Alas, we skipped St Georges last July because people told us it was too dangerous! How nice that I have your photos to remind me!!

  5. I was wondering when you would have a photo of the Conservatory. It is one of my favourite buildings. When I was I student I had to draw it in great detail and I fell in love with it.
