This memorial to the creator of Winne the Pooh in the heart of the Five Hundred Acre Wood is inscribed with a quote from The House at Pooh Corner: And by and by they came to an enchanted place on the very top of the Forest called Galleons Lap.

The plaque continues to proclaim that here at Gills Lap are commemorated A. A. Milne 1882-1956 and E. H. Shepard 1879-1976 who collaborated in the creation of “Winnie-The-Pooh” and so captured the magic of Ashdown Forest and gave it to the world.
