Wickham St Paul cricket pitch

Wickham St Paul has a very unusual and touching war memorial at the heart of the village. Six members of Wickham St Paul's village cricket team died in combat during the First World War and in 1919, at the request of then-church warden Frank Knott, the cricket pitch, located on the village green, was relaid as a memorial to them where it has remained in regular use. Recently a plaque was added to the cricket pavilion on the edge of Wickham St Paul village green in their memory.

On Sunday 13th November 2011 a memorial service was held on the village green by the pitch, over 60 people were in attendance, church lay reader Beryl Knight hopes that this will become an annual event.
