    Big church in a location between aldershot and north camp. Though cumbersome it actually is quite beautiful inside and out.

    Aldershot racetrack is behind the large Wellington statue on Claycart Rd, with access from Wellesley Road. We sat in the stands - you get good views but take a cushion as seating is rock hard. Many race goers sat on the banked grass area with their own (more comfortable!) collapsible chairs. Entertainment on the day we visited was mini stocks, bangers, stocks and a demolition derby finale - plenty of action close up with spectacular crashes and crunches. Been meaning to take our eldest grandson for ages and in the end both of them came (youngest is 2yrs old and he seemed to enjoy it more than the 10yr old!). There’s a couple of burger vans, plenty of parking and easy exit afterwards. Ok so lets be clear - with smoking tyres and excessive car fumes this is definitely not an eco friendly experience but hey ho wtf! If I recall correctly, adult entrance was £16 and children £6 which I considered good value for nearly 4hrs of “sporting fun”.

    St Michael's is a key part of the history of pre-military Aldershot, with a lovely atmosphere. Situated on the edge of Manor Park near the old Manor House, it's a place of tranquility in a busy world

    Church is located just outside Aldershot Town on junction of A325 and A323/Wellesley Rd (car park is on Claycart Rd and accessed from Wellesley Rd). A short access road (Old Contemptibles Ave) leads up to the church which was consecrated in 1863 and Grade ll listed in 1973. Since 1967 it’s been the spiritual home of the Parachute Regt and I understand (church was closed when I visited) that all members who died during WW2 have individual Kneelers.

    An interesting aspect is the 1 Div Porch on left side of building and worth seeking out. On one wall is the large wooden cross, originally erected in High Wood on the Somme to commemorate those from the Division who fell during the Great War. Timber for the Cross was salvaged from the destroyed Bazentin area and it was repatriated to HQ 1 Div in Aldershot during 1927 to avoid it rotting away. In 1937 it was moved to its current location. Next to the Cross is a sketch depicting original location and a brass plaque with details is on opposite wall.

    After visiting I suggest taking a short walk to the nearby grand statue of Wellington on his horse (at far end of the car park)

    ACC annual review, a privilege to attend and participate as always. Always clean and the memorials a constant reminder of lost pals....

    This memorial is in a sunken garden just below the Church of St Michael the Archangel and was unveiled in 1950. Interestingly, the centrepiece statue is carved from a block rejected by Christopher Wren when building St Paul’s Cathedral. As Aldershot’s national memorial it serves as a place of remembrance for the Battle of Britain and civilians killed in bombing raids throughout UK during WW2 (there’s also a WW1 memorial stone between here and the church). Originally there were mounds of masonry from destroyed buildings from 18 cities and 34 boroughs, including Cowes IOW where I was brought up and lived in my pre teens. Disappointingly, lettering on the large descriptive plinth laying in front of the statue is extremely difficult to read and the words need repicking.

    Really interesting and fasinating memorial in princes gardens, in centre of town. The statue itself is impressive.

    It is worth seeing this as the statue is huge and impressive. The statue is near a big field. One has to walk up a hill (there are stairs) to see it up close.
