Lindal War Memorial Refurbishment

Before and After

The Lindal War Memorial was cleaned, repointed, and given a new concrete base during October / November 2005. The railings were taken away, painted black, and returned in time for Remembrance Sunday. The work was carried out by Camerons, a conservation and restoration specialist, at a cost of 1450. They reported that the memorial was in good condition.

The Marton War Memorial was also cleaned and repointed by Camerons at a cost of 350, and was reported as being in very good condition. Barrow Borough Council funded the refurbishment of both memorials.

The photos show the Lindal memorial as it was before restoration, during restoration having just had its new base installed, and after restoration. The final photograph shows the memorial on Remembrance Sunday, with poppy wreaths laid on behalf of the townspeople of the Borough of Barrow-in-Furness, the Royal British Legion, and Lindal and Marton Parish Council.
