Visited under darkening skies & following a recent storm as evidenced by several fallen trees in the parkland. However no damage to the FBM sitting serenely amidst the devastation.

Passing through Lancaster and just sufficient time to come and have a look for this one. Nothing to add to previous visit reports other than to confirm that it is still there.

Very easy find entering the park from the formal gates to the west, between the pond and the shelter - views? well the pond and the bridge are nice enough but the park itself is lovely, dont just trig - explore.

Height tag missing otherwise vgc. Pleasant park. Good views from the memorial gallery but the FBM in a secluded spot. Would have thought it at risk from the mower but unmarked.

Different type of location. Very nice park to stroll in. Note a nice BM is shown on the OS plan a few yards away, on the plinth of something that has disappeared - near ground level, cut benck mark on vertical face, small bolt on horizontal surface.

The nearby pond had a half sunken steamboat in it. It wasn't till a few days later that it all made sense when someone told me there was an outdoor performance of Huckaberry Finn planned. FBM in good condition. Not much a a view though?

What an odd thing!! New to trigging so was expecting to see a pillar - looked like a plant pot from a distance! Could not find a bracket number on it. Great location (must remember to put a geocache down in this park)!

A cracker.. Did not appreciate the true nature of Williamson Park until my GPS led me here. Very beautiful site. Try the orienteering course while you are here, maps at the shop up by the Monument. Pillar intact, but no height.
