Park View was built in the late 1800s
The park was opened in 1912 all the other roads in Sutton with the suffix park, came afterward.
The triangle of land between North st, Bridge rd. and Main st was called The Sand was used by stonemasons to dress the stones used in the building of various sections of Bairstow’s new mill between 1888 and 1930, tided up it gave us an all-weather pitch for all occasions.
Various areas have in the past been used for playing football may be referred to as Parks
High Gate Lane was the name of the road before it was renamed Park Road after Glusburn Park was created.
