Description

This memorial site consists of the original column and two more recent walls.

The column is dedicated to the Great War. It features a square base with a tall, slightly tapered column with a winged female statue at the top. The base and column is constructed of a highly polished dark gray stone and the statue is of white marble. The base is raised above the local ground level and is reached by seven steps.

To the left and right of the rear of the column are two memorial walls dedicated to the Second World War and later conflicts.
