Selby Park

This is the relatively new memorial set in Selby Park opposite the Abbey, and pictured just a few days after the Remembrance service in 2009.  The War Memorial inventory describes it as a short obelisk, square plinth and single stepped base.  The inscription reads:

DEDICATED TO THOSE OF OUR TOWN AND LOCAL VILLAGES WHO IN WAR PAID THE SUPREME SACRIFICE

“INTO GOD’S KEEPING”
