Two new statues will be unveiled in the Todmorden Garden of Remembrance in Centre Vale Park on Sunday.

They were carved to replaced the Gilbert Bayes originals which were stolen almost two decades ago.

In 2011, under the direction of Paul Clarke, a former soldier in the Royal Artillery, Todmorden Civic Society embarked on a programme to raise £15,000 to replace the two Grade II listed statues.

Pictured is the work being carried out to complete the renovations.

The new statues will be uncovered on October 12, following a parade by the Royal British Legion.
