Hampton Bishop - Field Farm House (Herefordshire) |
Four Wellingtonia stand either side of the drive leading to Field Farm House. They were planted at probably about the correct width for a single horse-drawn carriage to pass through comfortably, but a little close for modern day vans. This has led to the peculiar shape of the trunks, appearing to be flattened on the inner sides! I suspect that many years of motor vehicles and the tarmac at the edge of the root structure may have encouraged the trees to adapt. |
