The War Memorial, Bridge Street

Hungerford's main War Memorial lies in Bridge Street. It was built on on land purchased by a group of Trustees in 1920 from the International Tea Company, whose International Stores had recently closed. Follow this link for more on the War Memorial Dedication Service. Several other war memorials can be found in other key buildings, including St Lawrence's Church, schools, and businesses such as the banks.
