Bodenham Parish Council Notice


Historic England have just notified the Parish Council that, following consultation with the Council and the relevant statutory bodies, the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport has decided to add Bodenham War Memorial to the List of Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest.

The Memorial is now listed at Grade II and the listing can be found on the Historic England website at https://historicengland.org.uk/listing/the-list/list-entry/1462186

Herefordshire Council, as the local planning authority, will now be preparing the statutory notices required under the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990 Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest.

In its response to the Consultation, the Parish Council provided Historic England with photographs of the War Memorial, of the Order of Service for the Dedication of the Memorial on 19 March 1921 and of the Service itself. In particular, they reported to Historic England the tradition that the famous Armistice hymn ‘O Valiant Hearts’, written by Sir John Stanhope Arkwright, was sung to its famous tune for only the second time at the Dedication Service. Historic England have noted this, but, because the tradition is not supported by any source evidence, could not include it in the List Entry. However, if the necessary evidence can be found, it may be submitted to be included in the List Entry at a later date.
