It’s a war memorial. Centrally located with car parking, seating, and public lavatories very near by. There is also a difibrillator in the red phone box should it be required. Recommend combining your visit with a visit to the nearby pump house and well.

The Ticehurst War Memorial stands beside a busy road in the village not far from the Church of St Mary the Virgin. From the bottom upwards it is a three-stepped base with a tapering shaft on top of which is mounted a Celtic wheel cross. It was originally unveiled and dedicated on 27 February 1921. A remembrance stone for those who fell in the Second World War was later added at the edge of the memorial area. The War Memorial was then rededicated on 27 July 1947. There are no names on the War Memorial but on the north pillar of the chancel arch in the Church of St Mary the Virgin there is a memorial plaque listing the names of the 62 men of Ticehurst who fell during the First World War. On the south pillar there is a memorial plaque to the 20 fatalities during the Second World War. Of the fatalities in World War I there are two sets of brothers. Lance Corporal Arthur Pierce was killed in action on the Somme on 23 July 1916, aged 21. His elder brother, Private Hebert Pierce, fell less than a month later on 17 August 1916, aged 23. The brothers must have listed together because they both served in the 2nd Battalion, Royal Sussex Regiment 1st Division. Hebert's service number was G.8459 whilst that of Arthur was G.8460. Neither brother has a known grave but they are both commemorated on the Thiepval Memorial, Picardy, France. Also from Ticehurst in the 2nd Battalion, Royal Sussex Regiment 1st Division was Private (Bugler) Frederick Trimmer who died in action on 17 July 1917, aged 18. Frederick was formerly in the 1/15th Battalion, Royal Sussex Regiment, in which his elder brother, Lance Corporal Reginald Trimmer, was serving when he fell, aged 21, on 16 August 1916 (the day before Hebert Pierce was killed). Whilst Frederick is buried in Ramscappele Road Military Cemetery, Nieuwpoort, Belgium. Reginald does not have a known grave but, like the Pierce brothers, is commemorated on the Thiepval Memorial. Of those who died in the Second World War, Major Michael Page of the Parachute Regiment Army Air Corps was killed in action, aged 33, on 20 September 1944 at Arnhem. He is buried in Arnehem Oosterbeek War Cemetery. The action to capture the bridge at Arnhem was portrayed by Richard Attenborough in his 1977 film "A Bridge Too Far".
