Cattle Plague / Rinderpest Memorials

Post by Tony Pratt » 10 Oct 2018, 16:50

According to Spinage "After the Plague was over 'a number of memorial stones and placques [sic] were erected around the country' [Spinage, C Cattle Plague:A History (New York, Springer, 2003), 192]. I know about, and have seen, the one at Water Eaton in NE Wiltshire and I am aware of two others, one in Cheshire (Moston) and one in Staffordshire (Mucclestone). I was wondering if anyone knows of any others? Thanks
