Talking to Peter Riddleston

Peter Riddleston

Retired Preston Park gardener, Peter Riddleston, shown above, was interviewed by the Friends of Preston Park and oral historian Jo Palache in order to make his fascinating memories of the park’s history available to everyone. His vivid recollections start from the second world war and include his meetings with Captain Bertie MacLaren, who was instrumental in designing the Preston Park that we know today.
