    This little church was built in 1755 and the graveyard is even older.

    South Park Street was one of the prime residential streets and there are still an impressive number of large homes and mansions.
    The stone house with the pink slate roof belonged to the Oland family, founders of the Oland brewery.

    Here are some other fortifications in the Park.
    The large guns are what are known as rifled muzzle loaders.
