  • This ancient oak is featured in Julian Hight's book Britain's Tree Story ( pub. 2011 ), along with other notably old trees still to be seen in the park

  • According to Ted Green this ancient oak is not the Conqueror's Oak (that is a dead stump hidden in secondary woodland in Cranbourne Chase), nor the King's Oak, nor the Herne the Hunter's Oak or known by any other name.

  • Have re-named this tree as The Forest Gate Oak
