About the memorial: Two shepherd's hut wheels resting on a metal base. A shepherd's crook is leaning against one wheel. It is pierced by a hole which is carefully placed so that the sun will shine through onto one of the wheels at 11.00 am on the 11th November. At the hub of one wheel there is a poppy plant with dropping heads, and a poppy flower with, at centre, a soldier is standing in silhouette beside a grave-marking cross. At the hub of the second wheel is a circle containing the names of the fallen in raised lettering on a blue background. The whole sits on a pile of stones The design themes were to 1/Honour the fallen, 2/To acknowledge the contribution to those who worked the land, including civilians, 3/To accept that people are still suffering through war today.
