Richards Castle after works © Richards Castle Parish Council 2014Richards Castle war memorial is located at All Saints Church in Richards Castle, Shropshire. The memorial is a clock on the church tower. A tablet indicates that the clock commemorates those who died in World War I and II. It is listed by virtue of being fixed to a Grade I listed church.

In 2015 a grant of £2,470 was offered through War Memorials Trust Grants Scheme towards repairs to clock. This included works to the dial, cleaning, painting, gilding and an application of SmartWater to deter theft as part of the In Memoriam 2014 initiative.

 

Richards Castle after works © Richards Castle Parish Council 2016The clock was made by J. B. Joyce & Co Ltd of Whitchurch in 1921.
