Description

Ellen, descendant of Abraham Caldecott Lord of the Manor in 1801, later married Edmund Harris, solicitor, who then held the Lordship until his death in 1893. Passing it to Rugby Council in 1903 to create a public park, they purchased 9½ acres of land for £500 from the Harris daughters. 2009 saw the restoration of the park, thanks to the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
