Richardson Evans Memorial Playing Fields  
In the north east corner of Richardson Evans Memorial Playing Fields is a circular hedged area at the centre of which is the war memorial, an stone cross on a circular platform reached by short flights of steps. The inscription on the base of the cross provides the war memorial history: 'The land around - 42 acres - is dedicated to public use in memory of all those who having been resident or belonging to families resident in the adjoining districts gave their lives in the Great War 1914-1918', on another face is inscribed: 'Nature provides the best monument. The perfecting of the work must be left to the gentle hand of time but each returning spring will bring a fresh tribute to those whom it is desired to keep in everlasting remembrance.' If there were once names around the cross, they no longer exist.
