After an absence of 26 years, Glossop’s Drumhead Service took place on Sunday afternoon.

Organised by the Glossop branch of the Royal British Legion, the service was held for 58 years before finishing in 1988, but it has been revived for this year to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the First World War.

The service was preceded by a parade from the Market Ground, led by Tintwistle Band, who also provided music during the service.
