Penn war memorial before work © Penn Parish Council 2002Penn Street war memorial stands on Penn Street Common, Bank Street in the village near Amersham. The memorial obelisk is constructed of Cornish granite. RAF, Naval and Army insignia are found within wreaths carved onto three of the faces. The memorial is within a conservation area.

In 2002 a grant of £150 was made towards re-laying and pointing the paving surrounding the memorial.

The memorial was dedicated by a local soldier on 11 June 1922 and names were added after World War II.

The inscription on the memorial reads:
