Geocache Description:


History

The memorial was erected in 1920, having been commissioned from J A Gotch. The land which the Memorial sits was given to the people of the parish by the Duke of Buccleuch. The slate panels were added after the Second World War. In 2005 a War Memorials Trust grant was used to clean and re-point the memorial.

Details

The war memorial stands in the triangular Hall Hill market square close to the scheduled Market Cross. Some 6m high overall, it comprises a limestone cross with PROWESS/ COUNTRY/ ENDURANCE/ [illegible] in raised lettering around the base of the shaft. The shaft is set on a tapering plinth with slate panels. One slate panel is inscribed IN MEMORY OF THOSE WHO/ GAVE THEIR LIVES/ IN THE TWO GREAT WARS (NAMES). The remaining three panels are inscribed with names only. The plinth is set on a two-stage square base.
