Hollingworth


Hollingworth War MemorialSite:

Alone among Tameside's war memorials, there appears to be no record of the unveiling of Hollingworth's monument to the fallen.

Appeals in the press, and searches of the newspapers of the time, have proved fruitless.

The only clue is a photograph of a friend of Mr Alan Jones of Mottram Old Road, Stalybridge, which would suggest the memorial was unveiled around 1925.

Sited on the approach to Hollingworth from Stalybridge - where Mottram Moor becomes Market Street, Hollingworth - close to the Gun Inn, the memorial appears to be made of granite. It comprises a squat octagonal column, capped with a tall cross. The monument stands on top of three octagonal steps, and is surrounded by a low wall.

The front section states: "In glorious memory of the men of Hollingworth who lost there lives in the European war 1914-1918. at the going down of the sun and in the morning, we will remember them."
