UPHILL’S GREAT WAR 1914 – 1918
In 2000 Uphill marked the second Millennium by restoring and rededicating their village War Memorial high on the hill overlooking the village in the grounds of the old church of St Nicholas.
On August 4th 2014, many households in the village and across the nation lit candles to mark the centenary of the start of the Great War of 1914 – 1918. Throughout the month, in almost every country in Europe, other families lit their candles in memory of their dead in the same war.
In November every year, villagers gather for Uphill’s Remembrance ceremony at the War memorial on the hill. As they speak the names of their village dead they remember the others who died with them in conflicts around the world and throughout the ages.
