Made in Leyland - The Centurion Tank, Farington Moss, near Leyland
Sited in a lay-by, just off the roundabout linking the A582 and B5273,
is this superb example of a Centurion Tank.
Developed during WW2 but not introduced until after the war had ended,
this model of Tank served the British Army and many others for over 60 years.
It saw action in diverse places such as Korea, Vietnam and the Gulf
Many of these Tanks were made in nearby Leyland ... hence the memorial.
