Statue of The Childe of Hale unveiled
Next time you visit Pickerings Pasture, why not pop down to Hale Village and see the statue?
On 11th April a new statue of John Middleton – The Childe of Hale - was unveiled and presented to Hale Village. It is in front of the Manor House on Church Road – on the way down to the church, where his gravestone can be found. His cottage is also nearby.
The original statue was carved from a beech tree opposite the church, but unfortunately it had to be cut down in 2012 because it had become unsafe. For more information follow the link:
