General Sir Arthur Clifton was born in 1780 and fought at Waterloo in 1815 as Colonel of the 1st Dragoons. He lived to be 99 years old. A picture of him hangs in the Clifton Hall although the picture was originally of his wife with his image later painted over the top. At the summit of the grove stands 11 ancient Turkey Oak trees. Some of the locals think they were planted to the memory of eleven Clifton men who fought and died at Waterloo. Trees have often been planted in the area to commemorate historical events. A tree was planted on Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee, George VI's coronation and the recent 900th anniversary of Clifton's entry in William The Conquerer's Doomsday Book.
