Condition
History
IN 2005 AN APPLICATION WAS MADE TO THE WAR MEMORIALS TRUST FOR A GRANT FOR REPAIRS. In 2016 a condition survey (after a 1st WMT grant) found that the memorial was a in imminent danger of collapse due to decay of the base. An emergency WMT grant stablised the position followed by a further £40,000 grant through the First World War Memorials Programme to clean and regild the cast-iron figure of Christ, repair the woodwork and lettering and rebuild the supporting plinth and wall. Work is ongoing at February 2017
