Isla Gladstone Conservatory
Work to restore a 110-year-old conservatory in a Merseyside park has been completed.
The Isla Gladstone Conservatory, which has been out of use for 30 years, has undergone a make-over as part of the ?14m regeneration of Stanley Park.
The entire structure was taken down piece by piece, examined for damage, rebuilt and re-glazed with 1,483 separate panes of glass.
The lake system in the 143-year-old Liverpool park was also restored.
Intricate ironwork and sandstone bridges throughout the park have been restored using old photographs to keep to original designs.

Really pleased to see the progress they're making with the regeneration
of Stanley Park, Kev. I've still got pleasant memories of going to the lake in
the summer holidays with a fishing net and a jam jar - would spend a whole
afternoon there , all for a few sticklebacks that would never survive more than
a few days in spite of all my TLC! Such were our simple and inexpensive
pleasures in the 1930's.I think the efforts being made to restore the many
green areas of Liverpool are beyond praise.
In this connection, can anybody tell me what goes with the Kirkdale Rec
these days? From what I can gather from odd remarks I've heard on this
site and what I've been able to judge from Google, it's not very much. Is this
actually the case?
Gladstone Conservatory soon to re-open to the public as part of Stanley Park regenera
A MULTI-MILLION pound scheme to restore north Liverpool?s version of the Sefton Park Palm House is nearing completion.
Some great pic's in tonights Echo,the park will look great,when it's finished, but does anyone know anything about Isla Gladstone,who the observatory is named after?
