Moreton-in-Marsh and Batsford War Memorial stands in Moreton-in-Marsh, Gloucestershire, and is a memorial to those of Moreton and Batsford killed in the First and Second World Wars. The erection of the memorial on the High Street began in November 1920. It is built of Hollington stone from Staffordshire, and stands 24 feet (7.3 m) high. The work was carried out by R. I. Boulton and Sons of Cheltenham to Guy Dawber’s design. Carved at the top of the memorial are the figures of St. George and the Dragon from the model prepared by the sculptor, Allan Wyon of London. The total cost was around £700, raised primarily from public subscriptions.
