Inscription.
Ranterís Oak
This piece of oak is part of the Ranterís Oak
from Rolvenden.

The reason it is so called is because John Wesley,
founder of the Methodist movement, preached
and “ranted” from its branches.

Queen Elizabeth I is said to have rested under the
oak on her way to inspect the Royal Fleet in Rye.
