This site is situated at the beginning of the famous ‘Trans Pennine Trail’ and was officially opened on 6th February 2004 by His Grace, The Duke of Westminster. This extensive site runs towards the banks of the River Mersey and has been refurbished by Life for a Life and United Utilities.
Life for a Life in growing partnership with United Utilities, has reclaimed land that was derelict for over many years and has now been put to use for the benefit of the community.
The site has a well established footpath through the area, suitable for wheelchair users and the elderly. Many benches have been installed throughout the memorial forest, which can be enjoyed by all visitors. The ‘Pennine Trail’ already brings many visitors to the area and of course this memorial site will encourage people that wish to stroll along this famous trail which eventually leads up to the Carlisle borders.
