Status: On original site
Type: Non freestanding
Location: External
Setting: Within a garden/park/churchyard/enclosure/Marketplace
Description: Board/Plaque/ Tablet
  • Stone Limestone
Lettering: Incised
  • First World War (1914-1918)
About the memorial: A limestone tablet modelled on the CWGC headstone with a shallow rounded top but with an inscription incised in upright, sentence case block lettering. The pin location is generically on the village. The building is on the east side of the road at National Grid Reference SK 27907 55553. The tablet is on the external west wall, visible from the public highway, but there is no right of access to the site. Middleton is also widely known as Middleton by Wirksworth to distinguish it from other Middletons. This is one of those instances where it's merit as a war memorial could be legitimately debateable.
