Poughill World War I Memorial

St. Michael and All Angles

Dove

A stone carving above the entrance of Poughill Church commemorates those that served in World War I and also the three that lost their lives.  Its presence serves to remind us, that from only a very small parish, there were quite a few men who fought in this war.

Below is a transcription of Poughill's dedication... in memory of those that served
 in the 1914 - 1918 War and of those that sadly never returned home...




This tablet and flagstaff was erected by parishioners of Poughill in memory of the men of this parish who gave their lives in the great war 1914 - 1918.
