Site Description The town memorial is located in a low-walled, paved enclosure with plant beds adjacent to Holy Trinity Church.
The memorial is a roughly hewn rectangular granite pillar, tapered at top, on a stepped base flanked by two plant troughs, the whole partly enclosed by low cast-iron railings. Names of the fallen in the First World War are inscribed on the polished west face of the block. A triangular section granite block set against its base records the fallen of the Second World War. Below this is a more recent commemorative slab placed by the Royal British Legion.
