Preesall and Knott End War Memorial was unveiled on 3 October 1920 by General Sir A Hunter MP. It commemorates 33 local servicemen who died during the First World War; the names of six men who fell in the Second World War were added later. In 2014 a project was undertaken to improve access to the memorial with the help of grant aid from War Memorials Trust.
