Whalley - By the old Grammar School


Whalley - part of the Pilgrims way. allegedly this was a destination from Pilgrims Cross. Possibly a central point of commerce. Packways certainly came this way.

I will return, the light was failing and I knew where the memorial was.

Panoramic of the Old Grammar School with the memorial in front.
However a tasteful location well looked after and certainly a good place for contemplation... even if traffic is quite heavy. Fortunately the A59 will take traffic away.
