Devonvale Mills war memorial cWMT, 2016Devondale Mills is a concave stone wall, which displays a kneeling, weeping winged victory holding a sword and wreath. There are memorial gates on either side. It is located on Moss Road in Tillicoultry, Clackmannanshire. It commemorates the fallen of World War II.

In 2016, a grant of £11,210 was offered for repair and conservation work. The existing pointing was failing, potentially allowing water ingress. The failed mortar, some of which was inappropriate cement, was carefully raked out and then re-pointed using a lime mortar. The stone had considerable biological growth and dirt which was carefully removed using wooden tools and it was then cleaned using natural bristle brushes and water. Some of incised lettering had lost legibility so it was deepened and sharpened using hand tools. Around the memorial defective and loose mortar from the paving and step joints was picked out, the stone steps were lifted, relayed and rebidded with an appropriate mortar. The flaking paint and corrosion of the metal gates have been carefully cleaned with wire wool and then repainted with enamel to match the existing colours.
