About the park
Weldon or should we say the two Weldon’s was for centuries divided into two sections, ‘Great Weldon’ and ‘Little Weldon’, both of which had Norman manor houses.
Weldon stone is a famous buff or honey coloured sedimentary limestone. Famous uses include several buildings within Oxford University. Basil Champneys used Weldon stone for the ashlar walls of his St Albans Quadrangle (1904-7) and The Wardens House (1908) at Merton College. Also, at his Rhodes building at Oriel College (1911).
