The Chained Oak is an Oak Tree, tied in chains, located near to the village of Alton in Staffordshire, England. The tree, referred to as “The Old Oak”, is the subject of a local legend involving the Earl of Shrewsbury and an old beggar woman. The legend was adapted and fancifully elaborated to form the back-story for the ride “Hex” at the nearby Alton Towers theme park.
