The Woolsthorpe War Memorial was originally unveiled in 1921 to commemorate those from the district who served in World War One. The memorial lists the names of the fallen and returned. 

The memorial was restored and unveiled on the 22nd November 2014 and now commemorates those from the district who served in all wars and conflicts. Two plinths have been added behind the memorial listing the names of those who have served in other conflicts.
