Garstang Memorial Garden

These two memorial plaques are placed at a roundabout fairly close to Garstang town centre. This is where Park Hill road joins Croston road. It seems the site was donated by the Adelaide and Castle lodges of the Oddfellows in 1987. This is memorial 3381 in the War Memorials Archive.

View from across the roundabout towards the garden.
