The adventure playground in Nursery Row Park 1974-77 – Brian L Sugden’s archive

We were delighted to meet with Brian L Sugden on 28th Jan 2017, who set up and ran the amazing adventure playground on the site of the northern two blocks of Blendon Row tenements, now part of Nursery Row Park. He kindly gave us his archive for safe keeping, containing some amazing photos as well as documents illustrating the complexity and challenges of setting up an amazing place for children to play with little money (he had support from Pembroke House) but a lot of enthusiasm and talent. He’d love to hear from anyone in these photos – please get in touch if you recognise yourself!
