George V Jubilee Oak

George V Jubilee Oak - photo by Rachel Sanderson

This stately oak is on the corner of the village green at Cockpole Green.

A sign at the base of its trunk states it was planted to commemorate George V's Jubilee in 1936. Born in 1865, George V became king in 1910 after death of his father King Edward VII. His coronation took place in June 1911. Although he died in January 1936, ill health meant that most of his duties were carried out by his son Edward during the last couple of years of his reign.

Trees were later planted to commemorate the accession of Edward VIII ... but plantings took place before his coronation which never happened due to the scandal connected with his relationship with Mrs Simpson.

If you have an old photograph of the planting ceremony in Cockpole Green, please get in touch.
