Commission: Tickhill Town Council. The project was initiated by the then Mayor, Gordon Armstrong, to commemorate the Golden Jubilee of H.M the Queen.
After the Council had decided to use a local artist, and local materials where possible, the Mayor and Town Clerk visited three local artists' studios and selected Johnson and Cartmel for the project. The relief map on the plaque was illustrated from drawings of each building taken from old photographs, engravings or from life.
The cost was 4,161, of which 2,000 was a grant from Doncaster Community Forum, the remainder coming from the Town Council. The limestone was donated by Stainton Quarry, 4 km west of Tickhill. [1]
It was dedicated on 26 June 2002 by the Earl of Scarborough.
