Musbury’s War Memorial now has listed status

As part of Historic England’s First World War Commemoration project, Musbury’s war memorial has been added to the List of Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest. It is listed at Grade ll.

DCMS reported “This is a simple, well-proportioned example of the panel or shrine type of war memorial, in the Classical style. Standing in a prominent position in close proximity to the Grade I-listed parish church and Grade II-listed Musbury Farm House, it commemorates those local servicemen who died in the First World War. It has
additional historic interest through the later Second World War dedication.

Historic interest:
* As an eloquent witness to the tragic impact of world events on this local community, and the sacrifice it
made in the conflicts of the C20.
Architectural interest:
* A simple yet poignant and well-proportioned war memorial in the Classical style.
Group value:
* With the Church of St Michael (Grade I) and Musbury Farm House (Grade II)”.
