Greater love hath no man
.. than that a man lay down his life for his friends
On Saturday, I went for a mystery bike ride. Mystery, because I didn't know where I was going before I started. Turned out OK, though, and over the next days you can follow my trip.
First stop is here, a strong contender for a "Now-I've-Seen-The-Picture-No-Need-To-Go-There" award, Three Mills Green is only green if you don't scratch too hard but it hosts this evocative memorial to men who have laid down their lives trying to help others. Beyond telling you that originally there was a cross 150 metres away that was dedicated to four men who died in 1901 in a sewer gas accident, I have been able to find little more. If you know anything, I'd be interested to hear.
This is just by the side of the canal where I took this shot.
Turns out that you can have your own copy of the sculpture, but I want the gargoyle! Link courtesy of DG.
