" The ancient trees walk makes a great start to the day, as everything is waking up and the birds are busying themselves around you. I always find myself pausing for a few moments by the ‘Old Man of Calke’, in awe of what it’s seen in its 1,200 year lifetime. It’s pretty humbling!"
- Ben Robinson, Calke Abbey ranger
