Kippington war memorial © WMT, 2007The war memorial in Kippington, Sevenoaks, Kent, is a small Portland stone wheel cross on a pillar with a moulded cap and base. The pillar stands on an octagonal plinth and a four-stepped base. Around the base of the pillar are carved olive twigs, and in the frieze around the top of the plinth is carved an inscription. The names of the fallen are commemorated around the plinth; their rank, name and regiment are listed.

In 2004/5 English Heritage and the Wolfson Foundation offered a grant of £1,143 towards cutting out defective stonework and installing new sections, raking out and re-pointing open and defective joints and cleaning the memorial with masonry biocide and water.

The inscription around the top of the plinth reads:

"In memory of the men of Kippington who died for their
king and country in the Great War 1914 – 1918"

The memorial was designed in 1919 by the eminent architect Sir Thomas Graham Jackson RA and constructed from July1920 by Dubarri, Crowshaps, Rosehill.
