Structure


A splendid 1914-18 monument consisting of a series of inscribed brass plaques mounted within a Clasically detailed black painted frame formed of two Doric columns supporting an entablature. "ERECTED IN HONOUR OF THE MEN OF WELLINGTON STREET WHO FOUGHT AND DIED IN THE GREAT WAR, THEIR GLORY LIVETH EVERMORE". Probably unique in the region as a memorial dedicated to those men from a single street killed in the war.
