Hornby Main Street and War Memorial
A view from outside St Margaret's Church, looking away from the village centre.

Hornby's War Memorial is on the main street, near St Margaretís Church having been moved from its original position in front of the (now demolished) town hall. Parts of the memorial appear to be from a mediśval cross which was re-erected in 1920 as a World War I memorial. The chamfered octagonal cross base stands on 2 steps and carries a tapering octagonal shaft with carved figures under a gable (SD5868 : Hornby War Memorial (detail)), surmounted by a cross.

On the east side of the octagonal base, there is a plaque (SD5868 : Plaque affixed to Hornby War Memorial) inscribed: 'Re-erected in 1920 to the Heroes of the Parish of Hornby.' A plaque On the west side records the dead of the 1939-45 war.

The memorial is a Grade II listed building (Historic England List Entry Number: 1071693 LinkExternal link ).
