Mytholmroyd Cub Pack

In the lead up to Remembrance Day 2018, War Memorials Trust’s Learning Officer visited one of the primary schools in Mytholmroyd.

A local resident who was involved in the works which were carried out to the war memorial in 2009 also attended the session along with a former WMT Conservation Officer. Both were able to add another level of detail when exploring local war memorials and could comment on the stone which the memorial is made from.
