About the memorial: A roadside arched shrine depicting those who served in the World Wars with railing in front. The memorial commemorates all local men who served including those who survived. According to local knowledge the metal tablet was originally placed on the rear of the monument facing into the churchyard where it was cordoned-off by concrete posts, three of which are still there. The position of these posts seems to indicate that the cordoned-off area was approximately 66m x 51m.
