Tyne and Wear HER(5205): Walker, Scrogg Road, War Memorial - Details
Walker, Scrogg Road, War Memorial
Portland stone angel surmounting a grey granite pillar surrounded by concrete paving. The angel has suffered localised damage. Loss of fingers, wing tips and other minor small scale detail is probably attributable to stone decay and frost action rather than vandalism. The granite pillar and concrete paving have been vandalised by spray painting. 1914-18 memorial.
