SY6873 YEATES ROAD, Fortuneswell 969-1/3/130 (North side) War Memorial

II

War Memorial. c 1920. Portland ashlar. Square tapered shaft to pyramidal finish on lofty pedestal and base. Set to a bed of gravel within dwarf wall enclosure. Plinth c 2.2m square with a central small area of paving to each face set in to rock-faced Roach stone which carries moulded pedestal rising to c 2.8m. A band of vertical flutes separates the ovolo plus cavetto shaft base from a broad scotia and torus above the principal inscription zone which is set just below eye level. A wreath with central blank circular face is carved to each face between the flutes and the inscriptions; further inscription panels 'hang' over the rock-faced plinth centrally. All names are in fine incised Roman lettering to a common size, and the whole monument, set dramatically at the top of the northern scarp slope is of quiet and dignified character. There is no sculptor's or other signature on the monument.
