Snow in April!

On a Sunday morning in April, we woke up to SNOW!




View along the city walls in Priory Park, Chichester.




Priory Park is situated in the north-east corner of the walled city of Chichester. The park is bounded on the north and east by the City Walls and their rampart is within the park area. To the south and west the park is bounded by Priory Road and Priory Lane. There are two formal entrances to the park with wrought iron gates and a smaller picket gate that gives access to the City Walls.


The park contains three scheduled monuments: the City Walls, the Guildhall and the remains of a Norman motte.


It has been used on many occasions for large community celebrations, such as at Coronations and Jubilees, as well as the focus for the Chichester gala and the Real Ale and Jazz Festival. The site is within the Chichester City Conservation Area.


The park has many modern facilities including a children's playground, aviary, bowling green, cricket square, floral displays and numerous mature trees and planting. There is plenty of open grass areas for recreational use and seats and shelters for the more relaxed visitor.
