The War Memorial

Abernethy's war memorial occupies a prominent central position in the heart of the old burgh.It stands on the site of the old market cross which was there for 300 years from the mid 1400s.The memorial takes the form of a replica market cross, and casual passers-by may well be unaware of the modest bronze plaques, bearing the names of the 38 local men who lost their lives in the two epic World Wars of the 20th century.
