Delays appear to be ongoing when it comes to repairs to Ledbury’s “sinking” war memorial.

Damage to the base of the memorial, in Ledbury High Street, gives the impression that the monument, which also has a slight lean, is sinking into the pavement. Ledbury Town Council has been discussing repairs for almost seven years.

But posting in the recent council newsletter, the chairman of the town’s environment and leisure committee, Cllr Dean Whattler said: “We have received quotations, but without drawings and specifications, so work cannot proceed until these are viewed and approved.”
