About the memorial: Garden. This report was compiled in May 2021 from a press release by Electricity North West dated 13 May 2015 which is no longer available on line. They had transported a 5 metre high oak pole from a timber yard in Penrith to Kendal College for carving and thence to Abbott Hall for installation. It was installed in a new garden "which has been designed to promote peace and commemorate the First World War". The garden was to be opened the following week. The peace pole is "one of more than 100,000 peace poles sited in 180 different countries in the world". Hence the pole alone would not qualify as a war memorial, but does contextually in the garden setting. it is across a bridge from the museum outside the Abbott Hall Bowling Club, almost riverside
