The Heroes' Shrine

The Heroes' Shrine memorial is Aldershot's national memorial to those who lost their lives in World War Two and was unveiled by the Duke of Gloucester in 1950.

It features a Portland stone statue of Christ stilling the storm and in front of it is a sunken walled rock garden, which contains stones from bombed buildings during the war, from 18 cities and 34 boroughs, including Coventry Cathedral and the Tower of London.

The Portland stone statue is carved from a block rejected by Sir Christopher Wren in the building of St Paul's Cathedral.  The statue was carved by Josephina de Vasconcellos and designed by borough surveyor F.W Taylor.

The Manor House

Built in 1670, the Manor House is a Grade II listed building.  The impressive red-bricked three-storey house was home to the Tichborne family, owners of the Manor of Aldershot  for 200 years.
