Seaton Carew War Memorial

  • Description

    "...The memorial stands at the northern end of The Green, overlooking The Cliff and the sea to the east. Numerous Grade II-listed buildings surround The Green. The sandstone memorial, c4m tall, takes the form of a cross rising from a pedestal, square on plan, which stands on a two-stepped base. The cross head is a Maltese cross with a wreath carved in relief at the centre of the cross arms to front and rear. The pedestal’s cornice is ornamented with a Greek key design. Westmoreland Slate panels to each face of the pedestal record the dedication and names, with to the front TO OUR/ GLORIOUS DEAD/ 1914-1918/ 1939-1945/ SEATON CAREW. Dwarf pillars mark the corners of the lower step of the base...."
