The Barnston Monument, Farndon
The Barnston Monument, Farndon
The Barnston Monument was erected in memory of Roger Barnston who had served in the Crimean War and died of his wounds at the relief of Lucknow during the Indian Mutiny Campaign in 1857.
This design of the obelisk was the result of a competition, the 400 cost being raised through public subscription.
The Barnston family lived in Farndon for over 600 years - they were major landowners in the parish. The family adopted their name from the village in which they originated - Barnston in Wirral. Hugh de Berneston is the first known member of the family living in this village c.1293. He also owned lands in Woreleston.
