Stanhope Drive looking north east (Horsforth) (4 comments)
Black & White imagec1955. View of Stanhope Drive looking north east. The tree planting commemorates the fallen of the Great War. Each of the 212 trees represents a Horsforth son, brother or husband who gave his life. A further tribute is the boulder seen left on which is inscribed 'We lie dead in many lands that you may live here in peace'. Salmon Crescent curves in an arc behind the war memorial and can be accessed at either end from Stanhope Drive. On the land between Salmon Crescent and Stanhope Drive there was an annexe for Featherbank County Primary Infant School, a concrete building constructed in 1948. It later became Stanhope Drive Youth Club.
