    St James Church and War Memorial, Staunton, Glos.

    Returning home after a pub lunch and driving through the village of Staunton Glos I spotted a sign stating war memorial on the main road.(see photos) Thought I wood have a look and take a few photos.
    I followed the road round to the church car park.We entered the church yard through a small wooden gate and was met by an elderly couple.The husband (I presume) asked me if I was looking for anything in particular,I replied I had come to visit a war memorial,his reply rather astonished me, " we have been parishoners here for four years and I have never seen a war memorial here".
    Any way we carried on and followed the narrow path around the church to the graveyard. One point of interest, growing very close to the church was a very old Yew tree, fixed to it was a plaque stating the tree to be over two thousand years old.

    Graham.

    I always recall seeing this building when my youth football team, Rayners Lane Rangers, played the Church Lads Brigade on the ridiculously slopping pitch directly opposite the RLB.

    Springfield Brewery War Memorial
    The War Memorial is a figure of a British soldier mounted on a granite plinth standing at 16ft, was originally erected in 1923 at William Butler's Springfield Brewery in Wolverhampton to commemorate the firm's employees who had served and fallen in the First World War.

    In 1949, the firm added a Second World War roll of honour on a second plinth which raised the height of the monument.

    The memorial was relocated to Black Country Living Museum in 2010, and is located at the top of the site looking over the Museum.
