Waterfall Bridge, Great Ayton

This footbridge over the River Leven into Waterfall Park is a war memorial. It was presented in 1919 by the Under-Manager of the Ayton Ironstone Mines, Mr. George Whitbread, and erected by the miners themselves, in memory of their five fellow workers who lost their lives in World War One:

  • Private Lawrence Johnson
  • Private Ernest Pearson
  • Robert Theobald
  • Private Arthur Wilks
  • Private Charles Wildman
