In Memory of Robert Robinson

In Memory of Robert Robinson
Rest here a while old friend of ours amid the gorse, and moorland flowers. Become this place you loved so well the moor, the stream, the distant fell. The old days are gone, the laughs, the smiles as we walked on, for miles and miles. We're sad those days have had to die as you have done, and so will I. Then as we round that final bend be waiting, at the gate, old friend. "You can take the man from Yorkshire but you can't take Yorkshire from the man". Halifax 14 - 3 - 39 Canada 27 - 1 - 93
Location: Trig point, Oxenhope moor, near Ovenden Wind Farm

Tom Mix

Carved by Eric Sawley who was born in the 1920's. He lived at Rock St Keighley and this stone was carved there by him when he was about ten. The council demolished Rock St and the paving stones were brought to Haworth.

Mr Sawley paid a visit to Haworth and found the Tom Mix stone on his way to the car park.

Tom Mix (1880-1940) was an actor mostly in silent movies. His career spanned from 1909-1935. He was in 336 films mostly westerns, where he would do his own stunts. He is one of the figures on the front cover of the Beatles Sgt Peppers album.
