The Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport has decided to add Cockfield War Memorial to the List of Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest. The memorial is now listed at Grade II (List Entry Number: 1452546).
It is described as “…an eloquent witness to the tragic impact of world events on the local community, and the sacrifice it has made in the conflicts of the 20th century.”
Listing helps mark a building’s significance and celebrate its special architectural and historic interest.
It brings specific protection so that its special interest can be properly considered in managing its future. Listing does not mean, however, that no alterations can be made.
The List entry, together with a map, has been published on the National Heritage List for England, and is available for public access through the Historic England Website www.historicengland.org.uk
