War Memorial, Heddon-on-the-Wall


The war memorial in Heddon-on-the-Wall is located in Memorial Park. The memorial cross was unveiled on the 11th of November 1922, by Sir Loftus Bruce. It  commemorates 16 local servicemen who died in the First World War. The cost of the memorial was raised by public subscription, on land donated by Sir James Knott, and the foundations were donated by the Throckley Coal Company.[1] The village pond was drained so that the site could be used for the memorial. Later the memorial was further dedicated to 6 local servicemen lost in the Second World War.[2] The village has an unusual tradition of dressing the memorial. The memorial is Grade II listed.
