Memorial sculpture on roundabout
Memorial sculpture on roundabout
This sculpture is featured on the roundabout at the junction of the old Mount Road (Bury St. Edmunds to Thurston Road) and the new Lady Miriam Way. It is a memorial for the US airmen that died operating from Rougham Airfield in World War Two - its location is on the edge of that airfield.

The sculpture represents the dove of peace with a section of B17 aircraft tailplane. This shows the letter A, as worn by the bombers from the airfield. It has become a favourite spot for photographing the sunset.
