There is at least one memorial in each town and village in Hertsmere. Each one is different and displays a proud elegance, fitting of the brave men and women who gave their lives and whose names are etched on their side.
The memorials are a permanent reminder of the sacrifices made, ultimately for the freedom each of us experience today.
Borehamwood War Memorial stands in the busiest part of town opposite Elstree Studios.
Radlett has a beautiful tall memorial on the corner of Watling Street and Shenley Hill.
Letchmore Heath in Aldenham parish contains a particularly fine war memorial in the small village green outside the Three Horseshoes. It stands almost 20ft high.
Other memorials can be found at:
- Bushey - School Lane
- Elstree - Elstree Hill North just beyond St Nicholas Church
- Potters Bar - by Oakmere Park and the Prisoner of War Memorial in Mutton Lane
- Shenley - by the pond
- South Mimms - by the White Hart Public House
