Cenotaph, War Memorials & Statues

Skipton Town Council owns and manages, on behalf of the Town, the Cenotaph at the top end of Skipton High Street and a smaller war memorial adjacent to the lower entrance to Aireville Park on Gargrave Road.

The Council is also responsible for the statue of Sir Mathew Wilson, located outside Skipton Library on the High Street.

Regular inspections and maintenance take place - and specialist cleaning is undertaken as required, usually every five to ten years.

The Cenotaph and Sir Mathew Wilson Statue were cleaned during the spring of 2014.
