Plaque Unveiled At Field Left To Lancaster In Memory Of WW1 Soldier

A plaque's been unveiled at a Lancaster green space which was left to the children of the city in memory of a local man who died fighting during World War One.

A service was held at Miss Whalley's Field on Sunday.

It's named after Geraldine Whalley who, in her will, said the land should be held in perpetuity for the enjoyment of children.

She did it in memory of her brother - Captain Julain Whalley - who died in northern France 100 years ago.

Meanwhile, kids at the Ridge Primary School and Central Lancaster High have also buried time capsules at the site.
