Prince’s Park is located in the Staffordshire town of Burntwood and is featured in the Guinness Book of Records for being the smallest park in the United Kingdom. It was created to commemorate the marriage of Albert Edward, Prince of Wales, and Princess Alexandra of Denmark. Wikipedia
It’s the little park at the centre of a BIG transatlantic row – after claiming to be the smallest in the world.
Princes Park in Burntwood, Staffordshire, is officially the UK’s smallest, measuring just a few feet wide and containing a couple of trees.
But now plans for it to claim the world title has sparked a war of words across the Atlantic, where two rival sites also lay claim to the accolade.
And soon the dispute could be raised in the White House, as local MP Michael Fabricant has vowed to bring the row up when he visits Washington DC later this year.
The storm in a flowerpot all started when Lichfield race events organisers, KP Events, announced plans to make it into the Guinness Book of Records by holding the world’s shortest fun run.
