About the memorial: A 10ft (3m) high granite poppy has been erected in Cornwall to commemorate the centenary of World War One. The sculpture in Camelford was developed as a community project, with stone coming from nearby DeLank quarry. Stonemason Steve Kay carried out the carving, which sits on an earth mound. A waterproof time capsule is contained in the mound, at the base of which are several granite boulders with a poem that was selected locally, adorning one of them.
