Geocache Description:


Edwinstowe War Memorial  is constructed of grey Cornish granite, and takes the form of a Celtic cross with a tapered shaft, on a two-stepped tapered plinth and two-stepped base, surrounded by a square-plan section of stone paving with a stone ball finial to each corner. The front (north-east) elevation of the shaft bears the following painted inscription: TO THE / GLORY OF / GOD / AND IN / PROUD / MEMORY / OF THE MEN / OF / EDWINSTOWE / AND / CLIPSTONE / WHO FELL IN / THE / GREAT WAR / 1914 – 1918; and the upper step of the plinth bears the 28 names of the fallen in two columns. The lower step of the plinth bears the following painted inscription: IN PROUD MEMORY OF THE MEN OF EDWINSTOWE / WHO FELL IN THE SECOND GREAT WAR 1939 – 1945; followed by the 14 names of the fallen in two columns. The war memorial stands within a memorial garden at the corner of Church Street and Mansfield Road in Edwinstowe, bounded by a low stone wall and stone piers, and approached from the north-east corner by a double-leaf metal gate and six stone steps.
