War Memorials

Northop Hall
Neuadd Llaneurgain

The Northop Hall War Memorial commemorates those men from the area who died in the First World War and Second World War.
It originally took the form of a stone gateway with engraved marble tablets at the entrance to the Village Institute. When the Institute was eventually demolished the memorial was re-sited to its current position opposite the church.
