Partridge's Exclusive Series of Sepia view Postcards of Spratton

The 1897 Jubilee oak tree can be seen, surrounded by a paling fence, on the green, slightly to the right of the line to the front door of one of the cottages. It appears to have a diameter of about 5 inches, which would give it an age of 30 years - but it is not known how big a sapling was planted in 1897. The picture, therefore, may have been taken in the ten years leading up to 1926. The Virginia Creeper on the house at number 13 is just staring to come round to the west facing wall.
