Walk of Remembrance

The 'Walk of Remembrance' features silhouettes situated in prominent venues across Workington as a symbol of respect and remembrance for those who lost their lives during the First World War.


The walk has been organised to coincide with the national 'There but not There' campaign.

We would love you to download and take this leaflet with you and visit each of
the venues. Learn a little bit about their history and Workington's heritage and remember. Please check opening times with venues before your visit.

Once you've completed all or part of the walk, why not let us know your thoughts at office@workingtontowncouncil.gov.uk.

There is no order to the walk, visit the venues as and when you choose (dependant on opening times which can be found in our leaflet).
