First World War memorial, Durham Cathedral

  • Description

    "This is the Durham County war memorial, located on a grassy slope beneath the eastern side of the cathedral. View from North Bailey. The memorial column is in a similar style to the piers inside the cathedral. The spiral carving incorporates items of military kit, such as a helmet, grenade and water bottle. There is an elaborate cross at the top. No names are recorded, there is just an inscription on the plinth with the dates 1914-1918. Designed by C.H. Reilly and carved by Tyson Smith, unveiled in 1928. More information and photos available at the North East War Memorials Project ." Photo by Rose and Trev Clough, 2016.
