The Cooper Memorial

The Memorial stands at the upper end of the High Street. It is an elaborate stone water trough, commemorating Sir Daniel Cooper, one of Newmarket’s most popular sporting aristocrats and benefactors, who died in 1909 at his second home in London.

He was brought by special train to Newmarket, where his ashes were interred at Newmarket Cemetery, just across the road.
