Volunteers have discovered many trees planted in memory of local people. In Goring these 10 lime trees now form an impressive avenue between the High Street and the church.
The avenue runs through Rectory Gardens which are dedicated to the memory of Peggy Edmondson, a young local woman who tragically drowned in the Thames in 1934 at the age of 21. Peggy had been born at the Rectory while her father was Rector.
After the Rectory burned down about 1938, part of the land was given to the church as an extension to the graveyard and the remainder to the village as Peggy's memorial.
The avenue is in the centre of the village
