DO YOU REMEMBER: Croxley’s commemorative trees throughout the decades

 Published on: 6th July 2022   |   By: Nik Allen   |   Category: Uncategorized

Residents may not know that for every national event, Croxley Green Parish Council have planted a special tree to commemorate it.

The first was for Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee in 1897, planted outside All Saints Church. A nearby plaque still exists to mark it out. Since then, trees have been planted for many major moments, such as jubilees, coronations, deaths, the millennium and the end of World War Two.

The most recent addition to this list were the three oak saplings planted in front of Croxley House this year to commemorate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

To find out more about this, and other pieces of local history, visit the website of the Croxley Green History Project.

If you yourself have any historical photos or memories of the village, feel free to send them into us at newsdesk@mynewsmag.co.uk and they could feature in a future edition of the magazine.
