Hedgemead Park was created after a series of late 19th century landslides. Georgian back-to-backs were demolished to make space for what became Hedgemead Pleasure Grounds. Keep an eye out for the cast-iron drinking fountain with its golden eagle, the newly gilded bandstand and the battlemented lookout tower. A few years ago, the council ran out of money for flowers in parks and gave over the beds to Transition Bath. Their most successful, high profile veg patch is here: Vegmead.
