War Memorial War Memorial GR Photography

The War Memorial in Leithen Road, a simple memorial stone surmounted by a bronze plate on which is recorded the names of the fallen in World War II, stands at the entrance to an unique garden. Situated on the south side of the former Burgh Chambers the garden is contoured as a miniature replica of Leithen Valley and the surrounding hills. This is the setting for the annual Remembrance Day Service and for the Service of Remembrance held during Games Week. To the north and adjacent to the Burgh Chambers stands the Memorial Hall, built in 1922 to commemorate those who served in World War I.
