1922. Classical arch war memorial commemorating World Wars I and II forming gateway to Den of Moness. Stugged and squared red sandstone rubble with matching ashlar dressings. Deep rock-faced base course.

N ELEVATION: moulded arch with relief carved crossed swords and shield to each spandrel, flanking piers with inset tablets each inscribed with Roll of Honour, smaller '1939' and '1945' tablets below those from WWI with relief carved dates '1914' and '1919' above; all surmounted by cornice and deep stepped blocking course. Flanking buttress-type walls each with stepped cope and decorative finial; 2-leaf ironwork gates.

Statement of Interest

The War Memorial was unveiled on 3rd June, 1922. In 1914, the Marquis of Breadalbane leased the Den of Moness to the town for the nominal sum of one shilling per annum. Visitors were charged an entrance fee of sixpence which was collected by the caretaker/guide who lived in a cottage at the Bridgend entrance.
