With the War Memorial cordoned off, a focus for Remembrance this year will very much be around our War Horse which is adjacent to the Memorial itself.

David Bish, our local Poppy Appeal Organiser, has already placed 44 wooden crosses at the site — there being 44* names on our War Memorial — and has sent us this poignant image.

For newcomers to the village and for those who might have forgotten too, the War Horse was erected during the summer of 2014 in commemoration of the Centennial Anniversary of the Great War (CLICK HERE).

Local Forge Master, Andrew Smith, constructed our 'Horse of War'.

The installation represents a permanent legacy to the role of horses during the Great War.

Local school children voted overwhelmingly to name our horse 'George'.

*many more local men died in conflict but their names are not recorded on the War Memorial. Tattenhall Local History has researched 57 local individuals who died in both conflicts
