BoW MONUMENT

The society believes that it is a matter of civic shame for our city that no fitting memorial yet exists to the thousands that died at the Battle of Worcester.

 

It is one of the core aims of the society to see a suitably imposing monument erected in honour of the fallen on both sides.

 

The world-renowned and local sculptor, Ken Potts is a society member and we would wish for him to create such a monument, to be located in a prominent position in the centre of the City of Worcester. His highly respected body of work includes the landmark statue of Elgar which stands opposite Worcester Cathedral and the Southampton Spitfire Tribute.

 

His design was unveiled at The Commandery on the 358th anniversary of the battle by Lord Faulkner of Worcester and Councillor Andrew Roberts, The Mayor of Worcester from 2009 - 2010.

 

The monument will cost in excess of £500,000, so as a society fundraising is incredibly important to us. If you would like to donate to this monument you can do so by using the PayPal link below or by posting a cheque made out to The Battle of Worcester Society.

Every donor will be named in a "Subscription Book" as well as a

benefactor of the monument on this website. Donors gifting more

than £10 will also receive a certificate of thanks from the society. It is envisaged that the most generous donors will receive special mention in the Subscription Book and (artistic interpretation permitting) will be named at the foot of the Monument. Thank you for your support!
