Hills Road War Memorial Cambridge

The Hills Road War Memorial commemorates the fallen brave of both Great Wars, as the soldier glances back to the train station from where he disembarked. The memorial is titled ‘The Homecoming’ and is both a social and historic landmark.

Project Summary

Members of the Messenger team have had association with this important memorial over a number of years, having previously been involved in the full recording and moving from the original position on a road island.

The specification for these latest works called for the inscribed lettering to be painted, in order to improve the legibility. The paint medium was thoroughly researched and later carefully painted by a specialist painting and stone conservator.
