Geocache Description:


War Memorial, Collingham

 

North Collingham War Memorial is a Grade II listed structure, achieving the status on 23 April 2015.

At the conclusion of WWI, Collingham was still two seperate parishes, North and South. This explain why Collingham now has two parish churches. Each household in North Collingham received a letter on 30 January 1919, asking for donations to build the memorial. Donations were forthcoming and the 8m high memorial was designed by C. W. Jewitt. It was officially unveiled on 30 November 1919 by Lt Col W Coape-Oates. The parishioners of South Collingham (including Brough and Danethorpe) decided to build their memorial inside the church.
