About the memorial: For a small village, this is a fine memorial indeed and must have been very expensive when first erected. It takes the form of a generic market cross standing at the junction of Church Street and High Street. Made from Clipsham Stone, there are 4 steps on the base which lead to a an octagonal barrel bearing cast bronze plates leading in turn to a shaft topped by a Latin cross. The designer/Architect was Henry Traylen.
