LAST week’s mystery structure was a memorial built in 2000 to mark the start of the new millennium.

It is, as correctly identified by several people, in Thornton-in-Craven, at the junction of Church Road and the A56, and was built by Mark Chadwick, says his sister, Andrea Day, of Carleton.

Other readers to recognise the memorial, which includes a built in clock, and seat, were Cynthia Thornton of Low Bradley, Michael Townson of Barnoldswick, Linda Curtin, Kate Ellison, and Valerie Corbridge, Barnoldswick.

The memorial is just one of many others around Craven and the rest of the country built to commemorate the start of the new millennium.

This one appears to be well used by walkers and cyclists, and the clock is still working - long may it last.

Thornton-in-Craven sits in the West Craven ward of Craven District Council and is on the border of North Yorkshire and Lancashire, close to Barnoldswick.

The Pennine Way passes through the village

Writer, Vera Brearey, who lives in the village, has written a fascinating history of the area, based around Old Road. Vera describes all the people who have walked and travelled along the road, from Romans to wealthy Victorians and itinerant mill workers.

In the absence of a different church to feature this week, we have this picture of a rural structure, photographed by John Barrow - many of us will have seen something similar, but do we know their purpose?
