Inverleigh Entrance Trees Print Page
The avenues of cypress trees at both entrances of the town were planted to commemorate the accession of Edward VIII to the Throne.
Edward VIII (23 June 1894 - 28 May 1972) was King of the United Kingdom and the Dominions of the British Commonwealth, and Emperor of India, from 20 January to 11 December 1936. Edward was one of the shortest-reigning monarchs in British and Commonwealth history. He was never crowned as he abdicated in 1936 to marry Mrs Wallis Simpson. After his abdication he was given the title of Duke of Windsor.
