Munro + Whitten were appointed by St Modwen Developments to relocate the British Thomson-Houston war memorial and design the new gardens around this Grade Two listed landmark.

The relocated and restored war memorial was re-dedicated on the 22nd July 2010 and commemorates the employees of  British Thomson-Houston who served and died in the 1914-18 and 1939-45 World Wars.

The monument and two memorial benches are a key part of the town’s history, dating back to 1921, with strong historic and cultural significance to the local community.

Our design included a natural stone paved spaces with specimen magnolias and ornamental shrub beds. The setting is reinforced by a terraced grass amphitheatre.
