Marsden Old Hall, Marsden Park, Nelson
Marsden Park was awarded the prestigious Green Flag award in 2012 which is a respected national standard for parks and green spaces. We have managed to maintain the Green Flag status since Marsden Park was first awarded it in 2008. The Park itself dates back to 1555 and has gone through many changes over the years, with the hall being extended in 1740 and many of the features being added in the early nineteenth century. The hall itself has been used for many different functions, ranging from a stately home, to an Institution to more recently as a restaurant, which it was when Pendle Borough Council took over the ownership in 2003.
Newly renovated Marsden Hall sits within the park. The hall is a valuable resource centre that can be used for educational purposes. The hall boasts various classroom and conference rooms, which can be hired privately.
Marsden Park is the largest of Pendle's Parks, with many historical and architectural features which include a pseudo-roman spa bath, an ornamental pond and marsh area, a circular garden, sensory garden and a Lady's Garden. There are also woodland walks to enjoy.
