Salmsbury War Memorial hall

I stumbled upon the memorial hall quite by accident. The car park was open and the door was also open. Chance for photos! Then research...


The Hall

Just inside the porch on the left hand side is a roll of honour. I was lucky the door was open. This is the inscription with the names:

LEST WE FORGET

Roll of Honour

The hall has an extremely well informed website - Really is worth examining - lots of information there. There is a history of the hall there, indeed the link goes to the page. I couldn't help but note the connection Turville- Petrie. What is not apparent is the link between this family and the gift of a plot of land in this area of Lancashire. A search in Google will reveal much about this family. Anthropology, Palestine, archeology and other learned pursuits figure in this family's history. The final picture looks up Cuerdale lane - away from Preston towards Blackburn. A fine little village hall - only without a village close by!
