Memorial at Nick of Pendle
This memorial, along with another at Salter Fell, was unveiled and blessed in November 2014. It is part of a project by Clitheroe Youth Forum to honour the 25 people, killed in 15 separate air crashes between 1940 and 1949 in the Ribble Valley. The forum aims to place stones at all crash sites, ending next year with a memorial boulder to all 25 victims (LinkExternal link BBC News).

The memorial at Nick of Pendle is in honour of an Australian pilot, who died in 1942 and an American pilot who crashed in 1944.
