3/86 Cast iron railings and
- plates to the Royal Oak
about 140m south-west
of Boscobel House
Cast iron railings and commemorative brass plates. The railings, erected
in 1817, on a stone plinth form a circular enclosure to the Royal Oak.
Within are 3 commemorative brass plates, held upright by cast iron brackets,
the smallest and earliest (in Latin) dating to 1787; the 2 larger plates
were placed here in 1875 and record the history of the tree. The Royal
Oak is thought to-be a descendant of the tree in which Charles II and
his companion, William Careless, hid from Cromwell's troops in 1651.
