Kirkham War Memorial

This war memorial is not in the town centre, it is set inside fairly large grounds which give it a sort of amphitheatre feel to it. About 400 yards from the Parish Church along a fenced with farmland on one side of the walkway. Grassed and gardens on the other. There are terraces above which lead out to Kirkham's main street. The walkway continues to more houses. The photographs make a better description. I haven’t completed the transcription - for WW2 (tomorrow!)

This is from the walkway,
if you continue past the memorial uphill you will reach Kirkham town centre.
To the left is the parish church.

In the background is the parish church, to the right is the terraces.

From the terraces, There are two sets of stairs.




The Fylde farmland, Inskip and other smaller villages are this way.

From the right-hand terrace, the church is to the right.
A playground to the left.
