|The memorial on a slight hill from the Nelson road.|
The cottages in the background are on the A59.
Behind the cross is a playing field.
|The path upto the memorial. This comes from the corner. |
Although it looks flat in the photograph it is quite a steep climb.
GLORIOUS MEMORY OF
THE MEN OF THIS VILLAGE
WHO LAID DOWN THEIR
LIVES FOR THEIR/ KING AND COUNTRY
IN THE GREAT WAR
GREATER LOVE HATH NO MAN THAT THIS
THAT A MEN LAY DOWN HIS LIFE FOR
WALTER B/ SMITH.
JOHN E.T. CORNALL
|View from the rear of the memorial|
A hay wagon thunders past on the Preston road. (A59)
|From the rear again, the road to the right goes to Nelson|
where the troughs are.
Between the houses is the main road and the village proper.
|This rock is close by. there are quite a few trees!|
Everything here is nicely tended and looked after.
