Black plaque № 11379 in Grange-over-Sands

Cox's Corner.
This small park was a garden belonging to Dr. Cox who lived on Kents Bank Road. His children used to play here and when they grew up he donated this area to local residents. Situated nearby is an hotel named Berners Close which takes its name from the centuries old rural craft of charcoal burning. "Burners" provided an essential ingredient for iron and gunpowder industries. The hotel was converted from a private residence by a local Quaker, Mr JW Midgely who built a meeting house in Grange behind Prospect House. He became a regular visitor to Swarthmoor Hall, Ulverston, the cradle of Quakerism.
