Darnhall Knobs, Winsford
Two stone pillars stand at the road junction known as Darnhall Knobs (Darnhall School Lane, Moors Lane, Hall Lane). A local web site describes the location...
"In 1897 to mark the celebration of Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee, one of the stone columns, which fell down 70 years previous, was re-erected at the Knobs. The bricks that were used, were taken from a cottage which was built two or three hundred years ago. This column was erected parallel to a similar one of very ancient date. In the base of the pillar, were placed newspapers giving an account of the opening of the Verdin Technical School, Northwich, by her grace the Duchess of Westminster."
