About the memorial: A War Memorial, built c. 1921, of grey granite, with raised lead lettering, and sandstone. The memorial stands on the north side of the B4396, at the centre of the village. It is of granite which is roughly hewn. It stands on a square platform, above which is a plinth with domed top which bears the names of the dead in a recessed panel to its south side. The shaft is square in section and rises to join with the cross, which has a hollow circle surrounding the arms in the manner of a Celtic cross. To the front is a sword, carved in relief. The cross stands on a raised, semi-circular terrace, set back from and above the level of the pavement. This is approached by two steps at left. The low front walling and the semi-circular walling to the rear are of irregular blocks of sandstone, brought to course, which match with the surrounding field walls and have large coping stones. c Historic England listing entry
