Description

Sir Robert Lorimer, circa 1920.1st World War memorial comprised of tapering shaft set on square pedestal and 2 octagonal flights of steps. Appears to be reconstituted stone (?). 4 recessed rectangular panels on base, with rounded arrises to surround, bearing dedication and names of fallen; chamfered arrises to shaft and 4 national shields below neck; cross finial in circle set on moulded base adorned with

paterae. 2nd World War memorial plaque added at base of shaft.

Statement of Interest

Mediocre example of Lorimer's work, produced at a time when volume of work replaced quality for many architects. Similar to Humbie War Memorial in design.
