Lancashire Fusiliers War Memorial, Gallipoli Gardens, Bury :: Shared Description

The war memorial to the Lancashire Fusiliers in Gallipoli Gardens, Bury, was designed by the architect Sir Edwin Landseer Lutyens (1869-1944) and was unveiled on 25 April 1922 by Lieutenant General Sir H De Beauvoir De Lisle. The Lancashire Fusiliers suffered heavy losses in the Gallipoli campaign and Lutyens, whose father and uncle had both been members of the regiment, gave his services without fee.
The memorial was originally located outside the entrance of the Wellington Barracks on Bolton Road, Bury. However, the barracks were largely demolished during the 1970s and the memorial's location was adjusted slightly in response to this. The Fusilier Museum remained at the Bolton Road site until 2009 when it moved to a new location in the Grade II listed former Arts & Crafts Centre overlooking the junction of Silver Street and Moss Street. The war memorial was subsequently dismantled, repaired, restored and re-erected within Gallipoli Gardens (formerly known as Sparrow Park), adjacent to the newly relocated museum.
The memorial is Grade II listed. LinkExternal link
