Monument and Cherry Blossoms
The Monument and Cherry Blossoms
The Background: Village Life in Finchley, London – Preserved by its residents together with Barnet Council, for over a century, the harmonious character of FINCHLEY GARDEN VILLAGE has created a special place of architectural and historic interest, with a community spirit passed down from one generation to the next.
A single monument sited on the lower village green in Finchley Garden Village received its Grade II listed building status in June 2019. Built of Portland stone with a lantern mounted on a wrought iron bracket, it is the only one of its kind in the world. Built in 1924, it is dedicated to village residents who lost their lives during both the First and Second World Wars and stands as a testament to Frank Stratton, the visionary and village architect, and also one of its first residents, who died in 1922 soon after completing this historic effort. The cherry blossoms which line Village Road in the spring were also planted in memory of our much loved and respected architect.
