Site of war memorial to fallen of World War I was formerly part of cottage gardens; a small railed incursion created a small recess. Opposite formerly stood a tin church built 1880 demolished 1970.
Standing on 3 concrete steps on a stone flagged base is the pale stone memorial in the shape of a Celtic Cross, the inscription on one side of the tapered shaft and the head boldly decorated with interlace, with date 1914-1919 in centre; added inscription plaque for fallen of World War II.
Included as a well designed monument in Celtic style, for its local importance and for group value with Lower Cross Oak Cottages.
