Work has started to create a sensory garden at Astley Park.

Chorley Council and the Friends of Astley Park have designed the garden, which will include new seating, improved access and raised beds with sensory plants.

It will be located on the site of a sensory garden created in the 1950s for blind war veterans.

Work will finish in June, in time for it to be seen by the Britain In Bloom judges.

Coun Bev Murray said: “The sensory garden is a great community project and will be there for everyone to use and appreciate.”

The council wants to hear from anyone with information or pictures of the former sensory garden on 01257 515151.
