Skinningrove War Memorial

This was Service of Dedication for the War Memorial at Skinningrove and the building behind was the Miners’ Institute built in 1875 by Pease & Partners (owners of Skinningrove ironstone mine) and now replaced by the old folk’s bungalows. In the 1950’s the big annual event in Skinningrove was the Christmas pantomime held in this grand old building, organised for many years by Mr and Mrs Lacey. Now the big event, thanks to Tina Dowey and many others, is the nationally acclaimed Skinningrove bonfire! John Kennedy enquired: “Could anyone please tell me what was the date this photograph was taken?” The Archive will continue it’s researches into the date.
