War Memorial, Haltwhistle


The War Memorial in Haltwhistle is located off Westgate, in a garden to the south of the new Haltwhistle Memorial Hospital. The 6 m tall stone Greek-style cross was designed by the architectural firm of Messrs Hicks & Charlwood of Newcastle, with carvings by Robert Beall. The memorial to the men of Haltwhistle who lost their lives in the First Word War, was unveiled on the 13th of November 1926 by Brigadier General EPS Riddell and dedicated by Reverend Canon EB Hicks.[1] The memorial was later also dedicated to those lost in the Second World War. The memorial is Grade II listed.
