The War Memorial outside Sherborne Abbey commemorates those who have died in conflict since WWI.
The land around the memorial is consecrated ground and thus cannot be planted, but a few simple planters surrounding the memorial give it a quiet dignity:
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.
This website is honoured to have twice won the coveted Barry Cruse Trophy for 'Best Website' in the South West in Bloom regional competition.
We were awarded the trophy in 2010 and 2013.
