The War Memorial on St Ann's Slopes, Buxton, takes the form of a sandstone obelisk with a winged angel facing north and holding aloft in her left hand a wreath and carrying a naked sword in her right. It was sculpted by L F Roslyn RBS of London. Plaques carrying the names of the 1914-18 dead are attached to the south, east and west faces, whilst those of the 1939-45 war are on the south plinth. The whole is set in a flagged garden of remembrance and is floodlit. (1)
