War memorial work completed
Work has been completed on Epping War Memorial.
The war memorial has been cleaned by a specialist conservator and the lettering has been selectively re-etched and painted.
Epping Town Council took advice from the War Memorials Trust and conservation professionals before undertaking the vital works.
The lettering had become worn and partially illegible over time and now all the names can be seen.
Epping War Memorial has Grade II listed status and any work must be planned carefully before the precious monument can be touched.
Town Clerk Beverley Rumsey said: "Epping Town Council are proud to be custodians of Epping War Memorial which is so important to our town.
"We are very grateful to the War Memorials Trust who offered specialist advice and gave us a grant.
"We picked a specialist conservator to undertake the very skilled work and we are delighted that all the names can now be read clearly."
