Additional information

Beside the road close to the main entrance of the wartime Drigg Royal Ordnance Factory (now the site of a national low level waste depository) is an oak tree [Photograph No. 1]. It was planted on 6 June 2010, the 65th anniversary of the Normandy Landings.

A memorial tablet is mounted on a piece of local pink granite in front of the tree which can be seen in photograph No. 2. The inscription reads as follows:
"This Oak was planted
6th June 2010
by Joy Hutchings,
It stands as a reminder for us all to
remember those who served their country
in World War II"
