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.
