Heyope Coronation Tree

A Coronation Tree celebrating the coronation of King George VI in 1937, was planted by the children of Heyope School. The horse chestnut with pink candles is located opposite the old school, now a private dwelling and business. The tree is across the street from the ‘school’ behind a hedge. It is diagonally opposite the southeast corner of the churchyard.
