Unfortunately the weather has taken its toll on the 1939-1945 inscription and has now rendered it illegible. I will research and try to find out the names. A revisit is called for. However the photos. There is a fascinating local history page here - well worth a visit!
(Chipping History contacted me and gave me the names of the 4 fallen men for WW2. They have a publication giving detailed information of the fallen for £3 + P & P. Further information is available on the website above.

To the right is Preston. To the left is the main village of Chipping.
|"THIS WALL WAS ERECTED BY |
THE EX-SERVICE MEN OF
THE 1939-1945 WAR"
|From just inside the garden the inscription around cross reads:|
"THEIR NAME SHALL ENDURETH FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION"
John Wm Nuttall
John Thomas Eccles
Jas. Irving Walmsley
|Towards Chipping village. The road to the right will take you to the fells (eventually!)|
