Eskdale War Memorial


The Eskdale War Memorial is located at a road junction between Boot and Dalegarth in Eskdale. The memorial was unveiled on the 16th of May 1920 and dedicated by the Bishop of Barrow. It commemorates 68 members of the local community who served during the First World War, of whom 14 died. Following the Second World War the names of 4 local servicemen who died in that conflict were added. The memorial was re-dedicated in 1949 by James Porter whose daughter, Ellie, died whilst serving in the Women’s Land Army in the First World War.[1] The memorial is Grade II listed. The memorial was refurbished in 2013, with the perimeter railings were replaced with dry stone walls.
