Description: Calvary
About the memorial: This memorial was created as a permanent memorial to the men from Porthill who fell in battle or by sickness in the First World War. The decision was taken that it would be in the form of a large wayside cross on a stone base. Around the cross there would be placed slabs of stone on which the names of those who fell would be inscribed. The memorial was originally sited at the Watlands View Crossroads outside St Andrew's Church. When the road was widened and a roundabout created in the 1950s, the memorial was relocated onto church ground, outside the East Window of the church, where it remains to this day.
