The landmark is covered in scaffolding as the project to have it ready for November and the 2014 centenary of the outbreak of the First World War.

Restoration work, which started in early May, includes the inscription commemorating the 114 men from the city who have lost their lives since 1945.

Money for the restoration comes from the Heritage Lottery Fund and the city council – with the Fund contributing £835,600.

The restoration work is being done by Maysand who have also restored Chester’s city walls and Sheffield’s catholic cathedral.
