Duns Tew commemorates Armistice Day

During World War One, more than 18 million people were killed and 23 million were wounded. From Britain, 6 million fought; 1.7 million were wounded; 65,000 were shell-shocked; 170,000 became prisoners and 772,000 died. No community was untouched.

We have gathered here today to remember all those from this community of Duns Tew who were caught up in the courageous but tragic events of two World Wars, those women and men who have died in earlier and subsequent wars.

We remember those who were killed in action; or disease; the bereaved; the lost; the families which were shattered; the wounded; the maimed; and injured; those who held in silence unspeakable memories of warfare.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old: 
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

Conservation Area Appraisal

Conservation area status is awarded to places that are deemed to be of ‘special architectural or historic interest’.  The intention of designating a conservation area is not to prevent change or development but to positively manage change in order to protect or enhance the special character and appearance of an area.

The draft conservation area appraisal and management plan is the first review and appraisal of the Duns Tew Conservation area, which was first designated in December 2005
