Newington College Chapel Memorial Walkway

Description

Twenty-nine brass memorial plaques commemorating individual ex-students who died on active service, mostly in the First World War, plus two in the Second World War and one on duty in peacetime. The plaques had originally been in the school's Prescott Hall. They were installed in a covered walkway beside the chapel in 1985, a year after the walkway was built.
