Memorial to a former minister, Horncliffe

  • Description

    "The memorial to Rev. Peter Valence is mounted in a wall beside the former parish church. I'm guessing the plaque was inside the church before its de-consecration and conversion into a dwelling and has been moved to this location so it remains in a public place. The text on the memorial reads: SACRED TO THE MEMORY OF THE REV. PETER VALENCE WHO DIED DEC 6TH 1898 AGED 72. HE WAS 4O YEARS MINISTER OF HORNCLIFFE AND THIS TABLET IS CREATED AS A MARK OF LOVE AND RESPECT. HE WAS THE FATHER AND FRIEND OF HIS PEOPLE AND AN ABLE MINISTER OF THE WORD. HE RESTS FROM HIS LABOURS AND HIS WORKS SO FOLLOW HIM. " Photo by Graham Robson, 2015.
