Description
A garden with a sculpture entitled 'Absence'. The sculpture is in the form of a stainless steel sail which has at centre the cut out silhouette of a uniformed man with head bowed and arms reversed. The sculpture is mounted on a circular base stone with the inscription in bronze relief. The names of the war dead are inscribed into plaques lining the pathway to the sculpture. A trail with waymarkers of steel, stone, and bronze lead around Emsworth and depict local historical scenes.
