The Hollinworth Lake is widely known as a centre for countryside recreation, and since 1975 it has become known as a ‘Country Park’. Well illustrated with over 40 photographs that include: Inns, Hotels, sailing vessels, streets, houses, a frozen lake, and one particular photo of the camp where the Manchester Regiment ‘The Pals of 1914’ were camped.
