Steeple Barton - Barton Abbey (Oxfordshire)
|The long driveway up to Barton Abbey passes through this avenue of some thirty or so Wellingtonia.
The spaces between the older trees have now been filled with young saplings, so I will definitely be surveying and photographing these trees in more detail when time and weather permit.
On a cold December afternoon, the old gate posts and the misty weather gave a rather dark and Victorian feel to the entrance.
It was almost like the set of a Hammer horror movie!
|A bright day in May gave an altogether different perspective on this grand avenue.
There are forty trees in all but there was still only time enough to record a couple of their details on this visit.
