Memorial Park


"This park was laid out, equipped and presented to Heddon on the Wall Parish Council by Sir James and Lady Knott of Close House, Wylam, in memory of their two sons: Major James Leadbitter Knott DSO, 10th West Yorkshire Regiment, and Captain Henry Basil Knott, 9th Northumberland Fusiliers, who were killed in action in the Great War" (plaque in the park)[1] The War Memorial is located in the park. Interestingly, the site of the memorial was once the location of the village pond, in the past used for watering cattle which were driven 'on the hoof' to and from markets at Hexham and Newcastle.[2] The park was opened on the 11th of November, 1925.
