Bridgwater War Memorial

Bridgwater War Memorial, King Square

This statue is situated in the middle of King Square, which is on the site of what was once Bridgwater Castle.

The War Memorial was erected in 1924 to commemorate the people who gave their lives in World War I (1914-1918) and was unveiled by Lord Cavan. 

It depicts a seated statue of a mother and her children and is intended to represent civilisation. In her hand she holds the World and in her lap the Book of Law.
