About the memorial: This is one of nine memorials to two brothers, Norman and Laurance Robertson, who died in the First World War. Their eldest brother, William, left money to the National Trust to purchase property 'within reasonably easy reach of London' in their memory. This coastal property of cliff, farm and downland (70.99ha) was purchased in 1940. There is an obelisk on the coastal path which records the gift and the two men for whom it was given.
