Godley Hill War Memorial
The War Memorial at Godley Hill, unveiled in 1920, is a small obelisk made of granite in the centre of a circular flower bed. The area is surrounded by a low wall. Access is through small metal gates, both of which bear the date 1953 (possibly because they were placed there for the Coronation of Elizabeth II). In front of the memorial, on the flower bed, is a cube-shaped white receptacle for holding flowers bearing the words "In memory of the fallen of Godley Hill"

Local volunteers spent time tiding up the flower beds and planting new bulbs in 2014. The bench outside SJ9694 : Bench at Godley Hill War Memorial, alas, is now in need of repair.
