Hillsborough Park

Recommended Posts

I was born just a few doors away from Hillsborough park entrance near the running track. My question is what was there before it was built.

It was a private residential country estate for the Dixon family (steel magnates). And before them another family. I want to say the Steeds?

Anyway the estate covered way more than Hillsborough Park. But when the estate was sold it was broken up and the council purchased the land that we now know as Hillsborough Park and hey presto.... A park was born.
