Condition
History
Date Unkown: Has suffered effects of dampness and some lettering is now difficult to read; RECENT IMAGES SUGGEST THAT IT HAS BEEN CLEANED (AUG 2004); A War Memorials Trust grant of £2,500 was given in 2009to address issues with the central drainage system of the monument. The hollow in the centre of the column was blocked and water was leaking out of the side joints between the blocks of stone. The statue was removed and the water drainage system within the stonework was investigated. Once the blockage was cleared a new plastic pipe was inserted into the centre of the column and out through the paving to allow proper drainage. The column was re-pointed using hydraulic lime mortar and the statue put back.
