Napton Hill - Memorial beside the drive to the windmill
Napton Hill - Memorial beside the drive to the windmill
The small sign, just visible by the fence, reads:-
"This seat and tree is close to the site of the observer post that witnessed the many nights of the Coventry Blitz. As a mark of remembrance the Rowan tree was planted on the 50th anniversary of the Blitz.

Whilst sitting on this seat made from Shuckburgh grown timber please take time to reflect on the freedom we have today. The support of this country in its desperate hours by such people as the Royal Observer Corps of the Home Guard, the Women's Land Army and all those in Agriculture and Horticulture who protected and fed this nation is not always so easily remembered".
