hereWe spent a few days in the lovely Lancashire town of Clitheroe in the summer and walked up the hill to enjoy the view from Clitheroe Castle. We were joined by the local town crier ringing his bell and announcing a community meeting.
We found this memorial bench to Derek Hudson Learoyd who died in 2009. The bench stands in the moat and looks towards the Keep of the Castle. His obituary here reports that he died peacefully in hospital aged 89 years.
It seems Derek Hudson Learoyd was an active and committed member of the Lancashire Geologist Association. The Association now have a DH Learoyd Award for outstanding contributions to the group’s activities.
