Travelling to Hull and Bridlington, it was worth the detour via Sledmere to take in a few of the remarkable memorials at the roadside. This was huge, with some lovely details in the carving. Some of the faces of the monument seemed a little unfinished....More

Outside of Sledmere but one of the sites related to the family and worth stopping to look at en route to the village.

As a child I was taken up to the top of this amazing monument and my abiding memory is of pigeons flapping around among their own debris. Sadly I didn't appreciate the wonderful panorama and one can no longer ascend but the views are pretty...More
