8/45 The Yeovil First World War Memorial

- - II

Commemorative Monument. Circa 1920. Ham stone; in the form of a C14 cross, hexagonal on plan. Standing on a 4-stepped hexagonal base, with low granite bollards to each corner; between angle buttresses, pointed arched cusped panels to each face with inlaid bronze plaques bearing general inscription and the names of the War dead: the first stage crowned with a band of Quatrefoil decoration surmounted by crenellation. The second stage has more cusped arched panels under gablets between crocketted pinnacles, with additional freestanding pinnacles to each corner; the third stage smaller but similar, except that the corner pinnacles are attached, then codes a band course, and the termination, a crocketted spirelet under an open stonework cross. Approx 6 metres high overall.

Apart from its general significance, the memorial is a very important element of the street scene of The Borough.
