Worden Park

South Ribble Borough Council – Worden Park, Leyland – October 2014

Worden Park Leyland (2)HMS won this contract published by South Ribble Borough Council to apply Decra™-Stone resin bonded decorative surfacing to pathways and courtyard areas within Worden Park. Dating back to the 18th Century, Worden Park previously formed part of the extensive Worden Hall Estate owned by the Farington family. After much of the original hall was devastated by fire in 1941, the remaining wing of the property, including the original conservatory dating back to the 1870’s and out buildings were purchased by the council, eventually being turned over to house local artisan businesses, with the woodlands and formal gardens being opened to the public. Recently Worden Park has seen significant and extensive improvement to the pathways which line the formal gardens, and the courtyard areas which allow access to the various retail units which now occupy the site. Due to the site’s Grade II listed building status, HMS were required to install an aesthetically pleasing decorative aggregate finish that would be both hardwearing, and sympathetic to the historic surroundings of the Park. HMS have since successfully installed circa. 3,500m² of 2-4mm Amber Gold Decra™-Stone surfacing.
