Bawburgh

Bawburgh is a village, lying in the valley of the River Yare about 5 miles west of Norwich.
The name is first recorded as Bauenburc in 1086 and is from Old English 'stronghold of a man called Beawa.'
The mill at the centre of the village was the original site of the manufacture of Colman's mustard.
There is a pub called The King's Head.

War Memorials

War memorials were mainly constructed after WWI to commemorate the troops who gave their lives in the war. Many were then updated after WWII. Some war memorials date back to the Boer War. Almost every town and village in Britain has a War Memorial. They take many forms, the commonest being an obelisk, a cross or statue of a soldier. Some commemorate the inhabitants of a place, some are for schools and others are for companies or Military groupings.
Many memorials are grade II listed, 61 are II* listed, LinkExternal link*_listed_war_memorials_in_England
