FIRST WORLD WAR MEMORIAL TRAIL
1st – 30th of November 2018

FIRST WORLD WAR MEMORIAL TRAIL
To mark the centenary anniversary of the end of World War One The Burgage holders of Alnmouth Common, in collaboration with The Local History Society are, for the month of November, placing plaques around Alnmouth Common forming a walking trail to commemorate the lives of the 21 men named on the War Memorial at the roundabout in Alnmouth. Each plaque will give an insight into the lives of these men who left their homes and loved ones to fight and die for our Country.
The families of some of these men still live in the locality, you may recognise their names.
The trail not only commemorates the sacrifices made but brings to our attention that these were real people from our own communities who gave so much to protect our way of life.
