Horncastle war memorial centre © Mrs Marigold Vodden, 2010Horncastle war memorial building is on North Street in Horncastle (LN9 5DX). It was originally erected as a hospital, opening in 1924. In 1998 medical services ceased. After local consultation it was decided to retain the building as Horncastle War Memorial Centre, a community resource.

In 2000, the Small Grants Scheme gave £250 towards a project to convert and refurbish the building as it changed from a hospital to a community centre. This ensured the functional war memorial building, chosen by the community as their form of remembrance, could continue in a recognisable form. Even if it could no longer function as a hospital it would remain a community building ensuring those in whose memory it was built continue to be remembered.
