A Garden For Lost Workers at Wainsgate Chapel
Remembering the lost workers
A very special and significant new space is to be created at Wainsgate Chapel in the South Penines in Yorkshire; it will be an important site of remembrance to the many people who lost their lives as a consequence of their work locally and elsewhere.
This new garden will be dedicated to the lives of the mill workers; the factory workers; the farm workers; the labourers; and all the front line workers who lost their lives recently during the covid pandemic.
The Garden for Lost Workers will be set in the grounds of the chapel, here in the heart of the Calder Valley, a landscape shaped by the hands of generations of skilled working people.
It will be a gentle, calming space for everyone to come and remember the people who lost their lives whilst at work, and will be a wonderful addition to this historic and much loved place.
