Avenue of HonourPrint Page
The Avenue of Honour was planted in 1955-1956 and replaced the original avenue planted in 1921 in Middleton Road. It honours those who died in service or were killed in action in World War One, World War Two and the Korean War.
The Albany Avenue of honour was originally planted in Middleton Road in 1921 to honour those from World War One. At the time of the planting Nurse M. C. Birt penned a poem in commemoration of the planting.
May every leaf on each green tree,
As changing seasons come and go,
Whisper our pride and sympathy
To name plates on their boles below,
And murmur one unending song,
In praise of those who marched along
