Wartimes

Over the centuries wars have affected this area in a number of ways, from the setting up of volunteer groups to people joining the armed forces in defence of the country.

The War Memorial in Newton Poppleford is the most visible recognition of those who gave their lives in The Great War (WW1) and World War 2.  More details of the courageous men listed on that memorial can be seen on:
