About the memorial: This memorial garden is sacred to remember the lives of those lost in war and affected by war, not just the second world war. It is a stone, sunken garden with three rectangular flower beds in it as well as a semicircular one. The center flower bed which has recently had beautiful plants in was once a fish pond. The beds either side are full to bursting with fabulous blue bells and snow drops. There used to be wooden benches in the alcoves but these were not replaced after a troubled person burnt them. The inside of the garden is paved with stone and the walls around it are stone.
