Ridley Park, Blyth


Ridley Park was officially opened on the 27th of July 1904 by Lord Ridley in a ceremony with music from the Seaton Delaval Military Band. The park, managed by Northumberland County Council, covers 5.5 hectares and is located just under half a kilometre from the Blyth town centre.[1] A community group, the Friends of Ridley Park, was formed in 2012. In 2014, the park won the joint Gold award for Northumberland in Bloom.[2]
