The plaque says the land was donated by Henry Bolckow (although I suspect the one who died in 1947 rather than the original ironmaster who died in 1878) it was dedicated on November 11th 1947 then re-dedicated by the Bishop of Whitby, Robert Ladds on 8th October 2000.

A further plaque exists just across the main road on a modern post, this one again mentions William Brunton, despite him being an OBE i’m having a bit of trouble tracking down his link to the area.
