A memorial to the Polish crew of a Wellington bomber killed on a training mission in World War II was unveiled at its crash site on 22 April 2007.

At noon on 23 September 1943 the Polish crew of Wellington bomber HZ251 took off from Skipton on Swale, in North Yorkshire, for a routine training mission. Shortly afterwards their aircraft fell out of the sky, crashing on the banks of the Leeds-Liverpool canal at Bradley, near Skipton. None of the crew survived.
