Every winter when the temperature dropped far enough, the Borough opened Pittville Lake to skaters. The skating mostly took place on the West Lake (once called the Marle Hill annexe). The images in this collection come from the Cheltenham Chronicle, between 1902 and 1940: fashions change, but the excitement of skating never seems to have faded.
Weddings come in all shapes and sizes. Take a look at some of Pittville's weddings in the first half of the 20th century, and watch tradition and change in action.
The West Lake (the "Boating Lake") stretches almost from the Evesham Road westwards, skirting below the rise upon which Marle Hill House once stood. This gallery consists of a selection of views of the Lake, from around 1890 until the 1940s, from old photographs and postcards.
