Walker - Scrogg Road War Memorial

The war memorial consists of a Portland stone angel surmounting a grey granite stepped pillar. The angel faces east looking over Walker Park and has an outstretched right arm.

The inscription reads
Erected by public subscription in honoured memory of the gallant men of Walker who sacrificed their lives in the Great War 1914-1918, 1939-1945.

I'm sure the Angel used to be holding a ring of some sort in it's hand.

Great pics, and thanks for the memories...I haven't seen that statue for about 10 years or so.

Thanks.
I can't remember it changing but I will ask around as I know someone who lives quite close to it. Maybe some yobs smashed it or something!
