5 years later. Passed the new Shillbottle war memorial the other day; and actually remembered to take the camera. So here it is. It has a very nice memorial garden attached with a small memorial to the miners killed at Shilbottle and Whittle Collieries. Entry to the garden is via a iron arch decorated with the shapes of mining paraphernalia.

On the subject of missing war memorials, i.e. towns that never erected a memorial in the first place, I'm under the impression Pegswood is such a place. Seems strange not to have one?

What a lovely spot, thanks for the photos Coquet. Is the arch the work of the Red Row blacksmith, do you know?

Not sure who did the steelwork. Not many fabricators around here now so Red Row a distinct possibility.

I picked up a 'Buglass' WW1 medal (survived the war) recently - allegedly from 'Alnwick' now wondering if he was from Shillbottle and related to the Buglass recorded here. Once I remember where I have put it I'll have another look into it.
