These post and gates were erected in 2016 during the centenary of the Great War, 1914-18, by the residents of Litton. They stand in memory of all those who lost their lives during the conflict and of Miss Maud Helen Penfold, a local benefactor, who in 1938 gave this field as a memorial to those men from the village who fell in the Great War and as a free and open space for the parish.
