Burrough Green war memorial clock on the school © Burrough Green Parish Council, 2009The memorial is a clock that is mounted on the village primary school. The face is coloured white with black Roman numerals, minute marks are bounded by black rings. The hands are of metal construction and finished with gold leaf. The clock face is inscribed “In memoriam” in black lettering. Below the clock a stone insert bears the dates “1914 – 1919” in relief. The clock mechanism is located in the roof space and mounted on a wooden frame directly behind the face.

In 2009, a grant of £566 was offered through the Small Grants Scheme towards replacement work. This work involved replacement of the original manual winding mechanism with an electric automatic winding system which includes adjustment of the clock on the seasonal changes to and from GMT. The replacement was required due to access issues in accessing the winding mechanism which meant that the clock had not worked for over ten years. New electric automatic winding system © Burrough Green Parish Council, 2011

The clock was manufactured in 1919 by Wigg of Newmarket. The school itself dates back to 1708 and is Grade II listed.
