War Memorial, Castle Eden


The war memorial in Castle Eden is located on a small triangular green on Stockton Road, in front of the south-west entrance to the Castle. The memorial was unveiled on the 11th of January 1922 by the Earl of Durham and dedicated by Dr Hensley Henson, the Bishop of Durham. It commemorates 30 local servicemen from the parish who lost their lives in the First World War. In a later ceremony on the 7th of November 1948, the memorial was further dedicated to 5 local men who died in the Second World War.[1] The memorial was restored in 2014 with the help of grant aid from War Memorials Trust. Castle Eden war memorial is Grade II listed on the National Heritage List for England.
