Morecambe and Heysham War Memorial - With Plaques

9 posts in this topic

The Morecambe and Heysham War Memorial stands on the Promenade at the seaside town of Morecambe, Lancashire,

 

The memorial remembers 216 men who died in the First World War, 180 in the Second World War and 1 in the Korean War.

The war memorial, made of bronze and granite, was completed in 1921 and designed by Thomas Hayton Mawson. A bronze lion sits atop a stepped base. On 20 January 1993 the monument was registered as a Grade II structure at British Listed Buildings

 

As always, please take what images you need :D
