New paths completed at Chorley War Memorial

Chorley War Memorial new paths October 2013

Work by Chorley Council to further enhance the civic war memorial site at the entrance to Astley Park has been completed.

The project to create two new paths around and to the back of the war memorial began at the start of September and was carried out by Landscape Engineering Ltd. who did work on the Chorley Pals Memorial and the War Memorial walls and site in 2012.

Two new interpretation boards, supplied as part of the Chorley Remembers project, should be installed next week in time for Remembrance Sunday.

The two boards will feature the history of the War Memorial from 1919 and some of the men whose names are engraved on the panels.
