Full description

Several utilitarian war memorials are likely to have been largely forgotten, such as Stokenham Village Hall. The liability of the commemorative element of utilitarian constructions being forgotten seems particularly prominent amongst those memorials which do not clearly articulate their intentions and origins through their name, inscription, and particularly if they fail to include the names of the dead.

Devon Community Buildings, 2014, Devon Community Buildings and Village Halls (Website). SDV356653.

Stokenham parish hall was built in 1921, of stone under a slate roof, and has been extended and updated over the years.
