Can you help?

In 2017, WMT gave a grant towards this war memorial. As it has been a number of years since the grant was given, we would like an up-to-date condition survey and photographs to be added to this war memorial record. Can you help?

Status: On original site
Type: Freestanding
Location: External
Setting: Roadside
Description: Calvary
  • First World War (1914-1918)
About the memorial: There has been some confusion about whether this cross was erected as a memorial to the First World War, or to mark the spot where the Lord Warden of the Cinque Ports held a court for Shepway. There is a link below to a useful article by The Kent Fallen, shedding light on the issue.
