Description

The following building shall be added to the list;

SU 90 NW EASTERGATE Eastergate Memorial

7/10021 II

War memorial. Circa 1920. Sculptor Morris Harding RBS SO. Catafalque type structure built
of solid stone blocks, six courses in height with the top course shaped to represent a mound on
which a full sized lion sits. Below the lion's paws is a carved wreath surrounding a FOR
VALOUR inscription carved in Art Nouveau style. Below this on the front face of the
cenotaph is an eleven line inscription in bold and well spaced capitals defining the purpose of
the memorial. Names carved round the base. A remarkably realistic effect at the rear is the
handling of the lion's tail. The whole is a dignified piece of symbolism, somewhat in the
manner of Lutyens, highly original in concept and imaginatively sited. Additions have been
made for the Second World War.
