C. G. Ross published a short history of Oak Apple Day in Great Wishford.
It is known as Oak Apple Day all over the country because it is the anniversary of the Restoration to the throne of King Charles II in 1660, after hiding in an oak at Boscobel in Shropshire.
Its foreword was contributed by a certain Earl of Pembroke: At a time when so much is changing for the worse in the English countryside,’ writes the Earl, it is heartening to know that Oak Apple Day in Wishford remains unchanged and as solid as it has been for many hundreds of years.
