First World War memorial, 1920. Later additions for the Second World War.
The war memorial stands in the triangular Hall Hill market square close to the scheduled Market Cross. Some 6m high overall, it comprises a limestone cross with PROWESS/ COUNTRY/ ENDURANCE/ [illegible] in raised lettering around the base of the shaft. The shaft is set on a tapering plinth with slate panels. One slate panel is inscribed IN MEMORY OF THOSE WHO/ GAVE THEIR LIVES/ IN THE TWO GREAT WARS (NAMES). The remaining three panels are inscribed with names only. The plinth is set on a two-stage square base.
The whole memorial stands in the sunken centre of a rock garden defined by a modern metal fence. Neither the fence nor the rock garden are included in the listing.

The memorial was erected in 1920, having been commissioned from J A Gotch. The slate panels were added after the Second World War. In 2005 a War Memorials Trust grant was used to clean and re-point the memorial.
Brigstock War Memorial, which stands on Hall Hill, is listed at Grade II for the following principal reasons:
* Historic interest: as an eloquent witness to the tragic impact of world events on the local community, and the sacrifice it made in the conflicts of the C20;
* Architect: designed by the renowned Northamptonshire architect J A Gotch;
* Group value: with the scheduled medieval Market Cross and numerous listed buildings around Hall Hill.
