War memorial, Rowington churchyard
The slender obelisk of Portland stone is sited in the northwest corner of the churchyard of St Laurence.

According to Douglas Hickman's 'Warwickshire' (1979), Rowington was "an early clearing in the Forest of Arden, and a parish in late Saxon times. Spared the fate of Claverdon by Birmingham's green belt, Rowington seems untouched by the 20th century."
