History

King George V Wordsley Park in Dudley has royal connections. Part of the park is an independent charity and registered as a King George Field, which forms part of the National memorial to his late Majesty King George V, which specifies that the land is to be preserved for public recreation.

At the park’s formal entrance opposite Barnett Lane, ornate gates, displaying the Heraldic Panels inform the public of the royal connection. The right panel depicts a unicorn and the left hand side a lion.
