The Jubilee Cairn on Nicky Nook
The cairn is a prominent landmark for cars passing on the M6 motorway and was erected in 1887 to mark Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee. Since then plaques have been added and the cairn repaired and re-dedicated by the Rotary Club of Garstang and Over Wyre to commemorate Queen Elizabeth II's Silver, Golden and Diamond Jubilees.
