Description:A postcard view taken in Denstone with the Heywood Memorial on the left and the building on College Road to the right is thought to be The Tavern public house. The Heywood Memorial is a sandstone memorial which was set up in memory of Sir Thomas Percival Heywood and his wife by his friends and Denstone villagers in 1900. Sir Thomas was the son of a Manchester banker and lived at Doveleys, just outside Denstone. He was a great benefactor to the village and built the church, vicarage and school, as well as donating the site for Denstone College.

This postcard was published by W Shaw, Burslem. It was franked on 10 September 1906 and sent to an address in Chester.
