SCOTTOW WAR MEMORIAL

World War 1 - Detailed Information
Compiled and Copyright © Transcribed and researched Steve Smith 2009

From the B1150, heading towards North Walsham, turn left by at the Three Horseshoes pub crossroads. Continue onwards and the memorial can be found on the left just before the road bears round to the right. It takes the form of a simple cross on a three-tiered plinth on a single stepped base in a gravel surround.
