First World War Memorial

First World War, 1914-1918

The memorial on Mt. Pleasant was erected by Christine Hamlyn, owner and benefactress of Clovelly, in memory of the village men who lost their lives during the First World War and her nephew, The Hon. John N.  Manners. 
In 1921 she then donated Mount Pleasant to the National Trust for the use of the people of Clovelly for all time.

The Gallery WWI exhibition in the Clovelly museum also covers the village men who lost their lives.
