Two avenues of trees

IN 1747 two avenues of trees were planted at Gartincaber at right angles to each other. The avenue to the north of the house was of beech and has suffered badly from the gales over the years, but the grove of lime trees that was planted to the west of the house has survived in better condition. Pictured above, it is said to be the “finest example of its kind in Britain”. The avenue is only fifteen feet wide and some of the trees are up to a hundred feet high.
