Welshampton

 

The Welshampton War Memorial commemorates those men and women from the area who were killed in World War I and World War II. The memorial, taking the form of a Celtic Cross, was erected at St Michael & All Angels Church in 1920. The memorial underwent a complete restoration and cleaning in 2010.

 

The small village of Welshampton lies in the county of Shropshire in England, close to its border with Wales.
