Does that mean the Bel will have to change it's name too because I've not seen any dragons around Cookham for a while either.  Grin

I think it should be renamed something more appropriate such as 'The Old Hubcap' or 'The Dodging Pedestrian'.  In a 150 years time that would be far more interesting than the 'White Oak' - they might not have hubcaps then ... or pedestrians for that matter!

I knew I had heard of a White Oak before and then it came to me that in Southern Ontario the White Oak use to be quite prolific. The book written in 1927 by Mazo de la Roche “The Whiteoaks of Jalna” is a Canadian classic. The story covers a period from the turn of the 20th Century and through the First World War and early 1920’s. So now the name White Oak has a Canadian connection. Maybe some aspiring author will now write a novel called the “The White Oak of Cookham”

They have a website which is under construction (www.thewhiteoak.co.uk) but there is a contact number on there that may be worth trying - 01628 523 043.
