Old Arkwright Town
Old Arkwright Town
The monument between the lampposts records the fact that the village of Arkwright Town was formerly located here. The village was moved in its entirety a number of years ago to remove villagers from the threat posed by methane gas which was seeping into their homes from old coal workings.
