Willington is perhaps most famous for George Burdon McKean, a private soldier who fought bravely in the First World War (1914-1918). Born in 1888, moving to Canada in 1902, McKean went on to serve in the Canadian Expeditionary Force.
His first gallantry award was as an NCO in 1917, followed by the Military Medal. One year later, as a commissioned officer, he was awarded the Victoria Cross for his heroic actions during a trench raid. Today, a memorial stone in Willington honours his courage.
But if history isn’t your thing, and you’re instead interested in visiting an Afternoon Tea Willington venue, you’re in luck. Indeed, what this village lacks in quantity it makes up for in quality.
Expect professional service and delicious delicacies in whichever Tearoom you decide upon.
