BOURTON WAR MEMORIAL

Compiled and copyright © Martin Edwards 2008

The Bourton memorial stands at the side of the A303 as it passes through Bourton. It takes the form of rough-hewn stone cross surmounting a square stone plinth. The plinth bears the inscription and names and stands on a three-stepped octagonal stone base. There are 14 names for World War 1 and 4 for World War 2.
