Widdrington War Memorial

  • Description

    ".....The c5m tall memorial stands in the churchyard, to the north side of the Church of the Holy Trinity (Grade I-listed). It takes the form of a rough-hewn granite cross with a wheel-head in the Celtic style. The cross shaft rises from a tapering plinth. The plinth stands on a stone base made to look like a stony outcrop. A small panel at the foot of the cross shaft is inscribed THEIR NAME/ LIVETH/ FOR/ EVERMORE. Below, to the front face of the plinth, the principal dedicatory inscription reads WIDDRINGTON MEMORIAL/ SACRED/ TO THE MEMORY OF/ THE MEN FROM THIS DISTRICT/ WHO FELL IN THE GREAT WAR/ 1914 – 1919....."
