The River Tame forms part of the ancient boundary between Lancashire and Cheshire. Taken from the north (Lancashire) side of the Trinity Street bridge looking across the bridge the photograph shows the town's war memorial that is on either side of Trinity Street.

To the left of Trinity Street the memorial bears the inscription:

1914 1918
JUTLAND
ZEEBRUGGE
THE FALKLAND ISLANDS

REMEMBER THE LOVE OF THEY WHO
CAME NOT HOME FROM THE WAR
SEE YOU TO IT THAT THEY SHALL
NOT HAVE DIED IN VAIN


and to the right the memorial bears the inscription:

1914 1918
THE MARNE
YPRES
THE SOMME

ALL YOU WHO PASS BY
REMEMBER WITH GRATITUDE
THE MEN OF STALYBRIDGE
WHO DIED FOR YOU
