A couple of weeks ago My wife & I wanted to go for a picnic as we were lat ewe ended up going to a local beauty spot called Wittenham Clumps. We had out walk around then went back to the car for our picnic as it was cold. Nearby I noticed this stone with a commemoration plate on it and a carving of a rose.
It says "Wittenham Clups Carpark was Formally Opened by Mr A.W. Hedges on the 17th May 1971when he was presented with a Rose as a token peppercorn rent by Mr R Seymore Chairman of Berkshire County Council" the ceremony still goes on to this day when it is presented to the Earth Trust who look after the area. In 1974 the boundarys changed and the clumps are now in Oxfordshire
The rose carving
Around the side of the stone is another plaque commorating the planting of a tree
Which has grown well over the years.
