    This is a memorial to those who lost their lives in the crash of a Stirling bomber on the main street in Tockwith on October 9th, 1945.
    The bomber was on a training flight and was about to land at the nearby Marston Moor airfield. For a reason that has never been fully established, it lost control and crashed, killing all the crew and the local postmaster.
    The memorial was designed by a local company Stage One who built the famous cauldron for the 2012 London Olympics.
