WAR MEMORIAL: Much-loved Hemel Hempstead landmark restored for community 

 Published on: 18th August 2022   |   By: News Bulletin   |   Category: Uncategorized

Dacorum Borough Council has completed restoration works to Hemel Hempstead War Memorial. 

The war memorial in Boxmoor, Hemel Hempstead is a much-loved local landmark around which crowds gather at the annual Remembrance Day parade each year. 

The Council has invested in the restoration and repair of the Grade II listed war memorial, including replacement of damaged sections of stonework with Portland stone indents and mortar repairs. The work also included re-cutting and re-painting of lettering and the sympathetic conservation cleaning of all stonework.

The work, which took over three weeks to complete, was undertaken by Cliveden Conservation, a specialist stone masonry company and project managed by Oxley Conservation, historic building consultants in conjunction with Dacorum Borough Council. 

Sir Mike Penning MP, said: “With war once again overshadowing the continent of Europe, it is more important than ever that we reflect on the cost of armed conflict and honour the sacrifices made by local servicemen and women and their families. Our freedom and democracy comes at a high price, and we must not take it for granted.”
