ABC Wednesday: W is for War Memorial on Werneth Low
The wooden model of Hyde War Memorial, borrowed from the Werneth Low Visitor Centre, was on display at Gee Cross Fete last Sunday.
In 1920, following a public appeal, which raised exactly £14,013, 14 shilling and 8 pennies, the War Memorial Committee of the Hyde Borough Council made a momentous decision by purchasing Lower Higham Farm and all its land. Following the purchase a scheme was put forward to protect the land forever for the health and well being of the community, a lasting tribute to the 710 men from this area who perished in The Great War of 1914 to 1918. On the site known as Hackingknife, at a cost of £2,000, Hyde's main war memorial was officially unveiled on the 25th of June 1921. The land and farm are now held in trust by the Hyde War Memorial Trust.
A more distant view of the memorial can be seen on Hyde DP Xtra.
