Field of Remembrance

To mark the centenary of the beginning of the First World War a Field of Remembrance has been set up in St Leonard’s Churchyard Loftus.


This unique Field of Remembrance commemorates the fallen of the Great War from across the whole of the Civic Parish of Loftus and can be visited between the 1st November and the 11th November 2014.

The Field was blessed and dedicated by the Rector of Loftus at a special service on Saturday 1st November 2014.  The Service was attended by the Mayor of Loftus, civic leaders from across East Cleveland and by many members of the local community.
