War Memorial in place

War Memorial in place at Powburn

Following the laying of the first foundations on 9 September 2018, the War Memorial itself was set in place on Friday 14 September 2018.

As usual, a team of willing helpers assisted.

You’ll see from the first glimpses of the Memorial in the images above and below that it’s in-keeping with our surroundings. The approximately 1.2 m bronze plaque, listing the names of 39 fallen service personnel from WWI and WWII, is fixed to a decades-old gate post that is believed to have been quarried locally.
