A delightful war memorial
Oct 2021 • Solo
This impressive war memorial is huge, well designed and well cut. It is an impressive size too.
Maybe what goes against is its location at the bottom of the village, but it is seen by many each day, albeit as they drive past.

Worth seeking out
Sep 2021
There are, actually, two war memorials in Haworth and both are worth seeking out. There is a granite memorial on Bridgehouse Lane (near the station for the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway) and one inside St Michael and All Angels Church (at the top of Main Street). The granite memorial was unveiled on 11 November 1923 (the exact day and month of the end of the First World War, five years earlier). The granite memorial contains 'battle honour' names and the names of 100 fatalities from the First World War. Amongst those names there would seem to be family connections as 18 surnames are inscribed more than once; for example there are four "Bells", four "Parkers" and three "Peacocks". The memorial inside the church is a beautiful stained glass window with the names of the fatalities being contained on two bronze plaques.
