Gisburn is situated on the A59 from Preston and heads towards Skipton. Gisburn is a market town, you will see the cattle pens as you enter the village.
The memorial is situated at the corner on a slight hill overlooking the crossroads. Should you turn right from Preston you will find a cattle trough too. However the memorial is made of Aberdeen granite, crafted by J Lees and sons. It was unveiled by Lord Ribblesdale on the 16th of April 1921.

The cottages in the background are on the A59.
Behind the cross is a playing field.

Although it looks flat in the photograph it is quite a steep climb.

THAT A MEN LAY DOWN HIS LIFE FOR

A hay wagon thunders past on the Preston road. (A59)
|From the rear again, the road to the right goes to Nelson|
where the troughs are.
Between the houses is the main road and the village proper.
|This rock is close by. there are quite a few trees!|
Everything here is nicely tended and looked after.
