On the A140, heading towards Cromer, you will pass Aylsham. At the crossroads
for Burgh Road and The Street turn right onto The Street. The memorial
can be found as you enter Burgh Next Aylsham on the corner of Wood Lane,
which is situated on your left. The memorial takes the form of a Celtic
cross mounted on a plinth which in turn is mounted on a concrete base,
angled to fit snugly into the roadside bank.
