Chalk Cross War Memorial on Downs above Lenham
Chalk Cross War Memorial on Downs above Lenham
Looking north from TQ904520 the cross itself is at TQ905527 just above the Pilgrims' Way.
First constructed in 1922, to remember those who fell in the Great War, and fully restored in 1994, the cross now commemorates the dead of both world wars. To avoid its use as a navigation aid by the Luftwaffe, the cross was filled in between 1939 and May 1945.
