East Linton & Prestonkirk Parish War Memorial
Location: Memorial Park
OS Ref: NT 589 772

The memorial park in East Linton is tucked away down a side street. Look out for a small arrow saying 'Memorial Park' at the entrance of School Road off the High Street.

A small plaque at the rear of the obelisk.



The park is signposted as the Memorial Park but there is nothing at the memorial or the park entrance to indicate whether it is a war memorial park.

If it is here's a photograph of it from beside the memorial
