Commemorative stone, west end of Station Road
Commemorative stone, west end of Station Road
The stone marks the Golden and Diamond Jubilees of Queen Victoria (reigned 1837-1901). The upper inscription reads: To commemorate the fiftieth year of the beneficent reign of Her Majesty Queen Victoria the oak tree growing hereby was planted A.D. 1887. The lower inscription reads: This stone was set as a permanent record of the Queen's reign having been happily prolonged to the close of its sixtieth year A.D. 1897. The imperfect placing of this stone suggests that it may have been moved here from somewhere else.
