Return to The War Memorials of Herbert Baker

Hampshire and Isle of Wight Memorial, Winchester. Unveiled 31 October 1921. Newly listed at Grade II*. This poignant memorial, dramatically framed by the great west window of the cathedral, remembers the 8,786 servicemen – from Hampshire and the Isle of Wight – who died during the First World War, as well as 460 citizens of the city. Its base incorporates a stone from the iconic 13th century Ypres Cloth Hall in Belgium, destroyed by enemy artillery fire that devastated the city. It is carved with a cross of Lorraine, symbolically linking the memorial to the Western Front campaign.
