An avenue of trees commemorates those who served in World War One.

The name plates that were placed at each tree were made of wood and were part of small crosses.  They were removed many years ago and held privately.  In 2002 the holder of the plates presented the plates to the Newstead Historical Society and they were mounted in a frame.   The Newstead Historical Society is located at the Old Newstead Courthouse, in Canrobert Street.
