Commemorating Little Hampden

Accession Oak - photo by Rachael Marshall, Project AssistantFor a small village, Little Hampden has more than its fair share of commemorative trees.

This includes three grand oaks, planted to commemorate the Queen's Accession to the throne in 1952, and a young golden acacia, planted to mark the millennium. The Accession Oaks are planted along the lower common, the first bearing a commemorative plaque, whilst the acacia is planted at the entrance to the village.

The oaks were planted by Sir Leonard Figg, whilst the acacia was planted by local resident Geoff Hopwood.

Hopefully, these four trees will be a reminder of the past for decades to come.
