LEATHERHEAD NORTH STREET TQ/1656 NW (east side) 9/151 War Memorial

GV II

War Memorial. 1921. Red brick and flint with stone dressings, red tile roof, cross of Portland stone, brick boundary walls with iron railings. It takes the form of long rectangular shelter raised above and facing a terraced garden in 2 parts, the upper rectangular with a cross in the centre, and the lower triangular. The shelter is in C17 style, single-storey, 11 bays of open arcading, symmetrical; the wider centre bay has a slightly projecting porch which has brick pilasters with imposts, a basket-arch with brick voussoirs and keystone, flint spandrels and a Dutch gable with a lettered stone tablet; the flanking arcades consist of round- headed arches on brick piers with imposts, brick voussoirs with keystones, and flint spandrels; the ends have basket arches with keystones; and the monopitched roof has copings in Dutch gable style. Inside, the rear wall has a large inscribed tablet in the centre, and all the other bays have round-headed blind windows filled with stone tablets commemorating the fallen of the 1st World War individually (an added tablet beneath that in the centre lists those of the 2nd World War). A flight of steps leads down from the porch to a paved area of the garden, in the centre of which is a tall chamfered cross with an inverted sword on the face, and an octagonal base. The garden is surrounded by low walls with stone copings, square brick piers and iron railings, and the principal gateway on the west side has taller piers with ball finials.
