About the memorial: On 4th October, 1943, a Lancaster Bomber crashed onto the village of North Thoresby demolishing the front half of the Methodist chapel. The Lancaster ED583 from 100 squadron at R.A.F. Grimsby, was conducting a training sortie with a newly formed crew. As the aircraft practiced a corkscrew manoeuvre it suffered a catastrophic failure of the wing tips. No villagers were killed or hurt in the crash, but sadly all the crew lost their lives. The Lincolnshire Aircraft Recovery Group have erected a plaque in memory of this crew in the village hall. The brass plaque was inscribed by a Boston engraver, and is fitted onto a wooden support. This memorial plaque was taken to the 100 squadron memorial service at Holton-le-Clay on 11th November, 2002, where it was blessed by a priest at the service and then placed in the hall.
