The Eagle at Norman Cross
The Eagle at Norman Cross
Erected in 1914 as a memorial to French prisoners of war who died here during the Napoleonic wars, the eagle was stolen in 1990 then the column was re-erected and repositioned to accommodate the new A1, with a new eagle, sculpted by John Doubleday.
The field housing the prisoner of war camp for Napoleon's soldiers and sailors lies next to the monument.
