It occurs to me that an open space which can be beautified by trees and preserved in a natural state might offer an opportunity as a memorial to all who fought and furthered the war of Freedom on all fronts.
The exact Chevin forest park is now obscured by tree growth. Horton-Fawkes of Farnley Hall decided to give the Danefield Estate to the people of Otley. He came up to the Chevin on Chevin forest park occasions and made many sketches and, as a result, numerous finished watercolours.
