Plaque at Borrage Lane, Ripon

Plaque at Borrage Lane

Owen arrived in Ripon Army Camp on 12th March 1918 - "an awful Camp". As in London, when during his training with the Artists Rifles he rented a room of his own, he now found a quiet cottage room in Borage Lane, a pleasant rural approach to the city from the training unit which was busily processing squads of young conscripts urgently needed at the front.

A plaque has been erected to commemorate his time at the cottage.
