Inskip Memorial

Inskip is a small town approximately half way between Blackpool and Preston. The most obvious thing about Inskip is its huge radio mast with red lights all over them like a giant Christmas tree. However it does have an quite vibrant community and at the heart of the community is St Peter's church, which also has the memorial. The Church is just of the road in the village, but it cannot be missed.

Taken from the side road that accesses the church
 The memorial is white stone, well maintained too. This is the inscription.

THIS MONUMENT WAS ERECTED
BY SUBSCRIPTION,
TO THE MEMORY OF THE BRAVE MEN
OF THIS PARISH, WHO GAVE THEIR LIVES
FOR KING AND COUNTRY, DURING THE 
GREAT EUROPEAN WAR
1914-1918,

THOMAS CROOK, H.L.I.
RICHARD IBISON, S.C.
GEOEFFREY CONNELL LANCASTER, L.N.L.
WILLIAM PORTER S.L.I.
WILLIAM PORTER W.Y.R.
WILLIAM STUART H.L.I.

GREATER LOVE HATH NO MAN THAN THIS, 
THAT A MAN LAY DOWN HIS LIFE 
FOR HIS FRIENDS

The inscription faces away from the church down, or almost down the drive.

 The other 3 sides of the memorial have no writing on at all. Have to presume that there were no casualties in the Second World War and subsequent wars.

The monument is just to the left
