Crook of Devon Cairn © Mrs J King, 2007The Crook of Devon Institute is a village hall serving the four villages of Powmill, Rumbling Bridge, Drum and Crook of Devon (the largest) which constitute the Parish of Fossoway. The population is around 1,000 and the Institute was built in 1911. In 2004 a major refurbishment of the hall was undertaken. Following that work the Institute undertook to improve the two war memorials associated with the Institute which were erected following public scubcription in 1920.

Inside the Institute a wooden war memorial board is dedicated to local people of the Parish of Fossoway who served in the Great War. Over the years varnish had been heavily applied making it difficult to read so it required a proper clean and re-lettering work, in line with the original design, and an application of varnish.

War Memorials Trust awarded grants totalling £180 towards the conservation work. This was in conjunction with another grant to a memorial outside the Institute (WM1939). Details of the grant offer were reported in the local paper The Courier and Advertiser.
