In 1945 a group of trees at the top of Longstone Hill had died, Mr. Falk who was the owner of the land at the time said he would support a scheme to replant them as a memorial to all those who had taken part in World War 2 in Holford and Kilve Parishes. The Scots Pine trees were planted in 1948 with a memorial stone, and a firebreak cut in 1950. The trees can be seen from a wide area around the Quantock Hills forming a silhouette against the skyline.
The land is now owned by the National Trust. – sourced from Holford News & Views
In recent months work has been undertaken by National Trust to tidy the trees and this week work was undertaken to clean and restore the memorial stone to its former glory.
