Ashford War Memorial Institute © Tom Crooks, 2017Ashford War Memorial Institute is located at Church Street, Ashford in the Water, Derbyshire. This memorial is a Memorial Institute hall constructed of timber painted black and white and render with a tile roof and timber windows. There are two stone plaques either side of the entrance doors with an inscription that commemorates those who died in World War I. It is located with the Ashford in the Water Conservation Area.

In 2016 a grant of £1,660 was awarded through the War Memorials Trust Grants Scheme towards a Professional Advice Grant to produce a Specification for repair and replacement of the timber windows and doors to match the existing as closely as possible but incorporating double glazing where possible.

In 2017 a grant of £26,370 was awarded through the War Memorials Trust Grants Scheme towards repair and reinstatement of timber windows and doors using traditional joinery methods to match the existing as closely as possible but incorporating double glazing in some of the windows to improve thermal efficiency.Ashford War Memorial Institute hall cTom Crooks Architecture, 2018

After WWI it was agreed that a new public hall would be a fitting memorial to commemorate the 16 young Ashford men who lost their lives. It was built on land given by Chatsworth and cleared using voluntary labour. The Institute was officially opened by the 9th Duke of Devonshire on 29th September 1929.
