Inscription

The round stone in the roadway opposite this point marks the spot where on Wednesday the 18th December 1917 at 8:10 pm a bomb from a German aeroplane struck the ground and exploded shattering the windows in Stone Buildings and doing other material damage.

Some of the "other material damage" can be seen in the pock-marks in the stone wall behind the plaque.
