War Memorial

The war memorial in Allenheads was sculpted by R.B Aves of Hexham, made from Cornish granite. The memorial was unveiled by Viscount Allendale in October 1920, dedicated to the local men who lost their lives in the First World War.[1] It was later further dedicated to those who gave their lives in the Second World War. The memorial is Grade II listed on the National Heritage List for England.
