Hengate Memorial Gardens in Beverley is an attractive space in the town centre with grassed areas, planting and benches. At the centre of the gardens is the town’s war memorial, which was unveiled on 18th September 1920 and commemorates 452 men from the town who fell during World War I as well as 128 from World War II.

The memorial is a tapered obelisk on a three-step octagonal base and on it are seated figures symbolising the Army, Navy, Air Force and Medical Services, each with a symbol of their service - a tank, a boat, a plane and the Staff of Asclepius respectively - In their laps. The gardens are also home to a sandstone tomb and three granite plaques commemorating those who worked in Beverley and lost their lives in the two World Wars.
