The new War Memorial, High Street, Kinver
The new War Memorial, High Street, Kinver
This relatively new War Memorial was built here somewhere around 1999/2000, or possibly a little later. It is to be found opposite the Police Station in the High Street. It commemorates the fallen of both World Wars. The village already had a memorial on National Trust land at Kinver Edge, which related to the First World War. It was felt that it would be more appropriate if this was in the village itself, but it wasn't possible to relocate this, and instead this new memorial was built. The War Memorials Trust gave a grant of 250, and also involved were the local council, the British Legion, the National Trust, and members of the public.

The wording on this side reads:- "For our tomorrow they gave their today. We will remember them." There is also a War Memorial in the Parish Church.
