THE CROSSES AT EPSOM AND SUTTON, AND THE PRINTERS' MEMORIAL AT LIMPSFIELD

THE CROSSES AT EPSOM AND SUTTON, AND THE PRINTERS' MEMORIAL AT LIMPSFIELD

The Cross at Epsom (bottom) has the character of a wayside shrine where roads meet; it has been wrought in a spirit of simple reverence on a splendidly-chosen site. At Sutton (top left), once more a Cross has been adopted as the symbol of sacrifice. Bronze tablets on the buttressed base are inscribed with the names of the Fallen, and the four finely sculptured figures just above add significance to this graceful memorial. In the pine-girt garden of the Caxton Convalescent Home at Limpsfield (top right) is the Printers' Memorial.
