NY2448 : Commemorative pyramid, Barton Laws Playing Field

near to Wigton, Cumbria, Great Britain

Commemorative pyramid, Barton Laws Playing Field
Commemorative pyramid, Barton Laws Playing Field
There are two very shiny plaques on the pyramid :

North side "This Playing Field was purchased in 1920 to perpetuate the memory of the townspeople of Wigton who served in The Great War 1914-1918"
South side "This Playing Field was rededicated by the Wigton Town Council to commemorate the opening of the Wigton Bypass on 7th April 1993.
This Memorial was built by the contractors Alfred McAlpine Construction Ltd and the plaques were provided by UCB Films PLC"

Are we to understand that they have rededicated the playing field to something entirely different?
