Ham Hill War Memorial

This war memorial, more formally known as the Stoke-Sub-Hamdon war memorial, sits atop an old iron age hill fort called Ham Hill. It commemorates those who fought in World War 1, World War 2, and Northern Ireland.

It was designed by a Mr W Bussell from nearby Montacute, and constructed by the Ham Hill and Doulting Stone Company. The official ceremony to mark the monument’s establishment was in 1923 when King Edward VIII (though he was the Prince of Wales at the time) presented a wreath.
