A walk to Padstow War Memorial

2014 marks the centenary of the start of the First World War in 1914, a war where thousands of men lost their lives.  With the moving tribute of a sea of red poppies displayed at the Tower of London, each one of the 888,246 poppies representing a life lost in battle, I thought it fitting to remember  in this blog, those from Padstow who lost their lives in the First and Second World Wars, and here is a photo of their names on the War Memorial in Padstow.

The Memorial needs cleaning is this a job for the Council?

The War Memorial in Padstow is iconic it is situated on a hilltop overlooking Padstow town, with fabulous views over the Camel Estuary over to Rock, Polzeath and Porthilly.  Take a walk up there and drink in the stunning views, sit awhile in quiet reflection.
