War memorial at Clitheroe Castle

War memorial at Clitheroe Castle
Bronze statue of a WWI infantryman as in a funeral party, with head bowed and rifle in the reverse arms position. The figure stands on top of the registered but unlisted war memorial on the battlements of Clitheroe Castle, Lancashire. It was unveiled in 1923. The town of Clitheroe lies below in the autumn sunlight, with Pendle Hill in the distance.

The statue is by Louis Frederick Roslyn (born Roselieb), 1878-1934, a prolific sculptor of war memorials. He used this figure at least three times -- at Clitheroe, at Slaidburn, ten miles to the north, and at Denholme, in Bradford.
