>From the wiki: "A memorial object, which is especially large (one can go
inside,
walk on or through it) or high enough..."  Those are alternative criteria,
not
components of a single criterion.  Although it might (just) be high enough,
that wall was not constructed as part of the memorial.  But if it had been
constructed as part of the memorial, it might (just) qualify as a monument.

Now that I think about it, is

a monument or a memorial?  To give an idea of scale, that grey rectangle
to its right, near a tree, is a phone box.  It's tagged as a memorial,
but maybe it's high enough to be a monument.
