War Memorial at Cartwright Street


This War Memorial lies at the fork in the road where Cartwright Street leaves Victoria Street.

The memorial, unveiled on 13th March 1920, is 12ft high with the bottom base 4ft square. It rises in three successive diminishing bases on which is a large die surmounted by a cap on which stands the figure of a soldier symbolising the brave fellows to whom the memorial is erected.

A new bronze statue of a soldier was erected in 2005.

Sigh. I dream of the day when the world will no longer need war memorials…

I assume that's the new bronze statue on the top of the memorial now? Cheering that it's being looked after and maintained.
