Around 20 people joined our field visit that was postponed to Saturday 18th March to measure some veteran trees at Cannon Hall. We mainly looked at the notable oak trees below the stream and lake, coming back past the old yew tree.
If you’d like some information on ancient and other veteran trees, and how to recognise them, just let us know.
Wednesday 18 May saw our annual evening visit to the Gunthwaite area, walking from Gunthwaite dam to Gunthwaite Hall Farm: ancient paved tracks, field paths, hedgerows, pastures, woodland and an impressive veteran tree.
There were lots of woodland flowering plants alongside the tracks and in the woodlands, although this year the summer migrant birds were missing.
