In the 1700s, the rambling picturesque qualities of Park Hill fell out of fashion. People wanted their buildings to be neat, tidy and symmetrical.
The side elevation of Park Hill was therefore rebuilt in the formal Georgian style. However, look carefully and you will see that it is not perfectly symmetrical… old habits die hard!
Park Hill at this time was split into two houses for separate families. This part is called the Clerk’s House because 50 years ago, the Clerk of the old Barrowford District Council live here.
