II

War memorial. 3 statues forming a group, 1921 by Gilbert Bayes. 2 small sculptures are of children in Portland stone one called "THE LAMP OF MEMORY", the other "THE SHIELD OF HONOUR". The climax of the piece is tall statue of Portland stone of St. George holding his sword having vanquished the dragon who has 4 heads,on a globe supported by maidens in Greek dress. This is a good example of sculpture of the period. The whole stands on a plinth enclosed in a horse-shoe shaped water basin with tall wall behind bearing date 1914-18 and 1939-45 with inscription set between. To either side, tablets engraved with the names of the fallen. J. A. Lee, Todmorden and the Great War, (Todmorden 1922) p.205.
