However I knew that there was a memorial there. These are the photos and the inscriptions. Waddington Hall has an interesting history. This is not to be confused with the village of Waddington in Lincolnshire which I am sure is just as lovely.

|Closer Still, Celtic cross|
|Close up of the base,|
The inscription is below
|View from the memorial to the church|
|Similar to the above view, but a little further along the path|
|I WILL RAISE UP HIS RUINS AND|
I WILL BUILD IT AS IN THE DAYS
OF OLD +798. WADA DVX
1900 JOHN WADDINGTON
Its veracity cannot be confirmed - but it does lend a bit of credence to the inscription over the gateway to Waddington hall. I have left the links in and left the page exactly as the family history page - The copy-right is not mine!
If you follow the links the inscription is mentioned.
|This opposite the memorial. The stream|
and the Clitheroe road is between me and the Gateway
|Looking up the stream towards the church|
|An early postcard of Waddington,|
little in the way of landscaping and of course no traffic.
A closer view will reveal the church.
