Sykes Memorial at Sledmere

Sykes Memorial at Sledmere

On this pleasant spring evening we decided to get Fish & Chips from Harpers at Wetwang then drive up to the Sykes Memorial at Sledmere to eat them whilst enjoying the view.  

The memorial sits in a commanding position and is visible for miles around. From the base you can probably see a good 20 miles to the south and if you could get to the top much further I expect.

The tower was built as a memorial to Sir Tatton Sykes 4th Baronet. Sledmere Estate and village is still in the hands of the Sykes family.
