Buckden Memorial Cross
The memorial reads "Thanksgiving to God, the Parker family and local people and in memory of five Polish RAF airmen who died here on 31/1/42 - buried in Newark. The Survivor"
The plane crashed in a snowstorm and one crewman managed to crawl to safety in the valley by following the trail of a fox. There is a bronze fox's head on the memorial to commemorate this.
