  • Description

    The First World War memorial for Blyth (including New Delaval, Newsham, Bebside and Cowpen) was originally located outside the Knight Memorial Hospital on Beaconsfield Street. It was unveiled on the 17th November, 1923 by the Duke of Northumberland and dedicated by Reverend A Tuson, in commemoration of 637 servicemen who lost their lives in the First World War. The memorial was moved to its location in Ridley Park in 1950. (source: Historic England) The adjacent celtic cross is a memorial to those lost in the Boer War (1899-1902).
