Eskdale war memorial church

Eskdale war memorial church

The Eskdale war memorial church on State Highway 5 was designed by James Chapman-Taylor and dedicated in 1920. It was built in memory of a local man, Percival Beattie, who was killed near the end of the First World War. Eskdale farmer Thomas Clark donated the land and his daughter Annie, Beattie’s widow, funded the building and its furnishings.
