Ancient Trees exhibition

Standing proud on the estate for centuries, Sizergh’s ancient trees can tell fascinating stories about the landscape.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

The Sizergh estate hosts a collection of ancient trees, those trees which are remarkably old for their species from 150 year old birch trees to a 2,000 year old yew tree.

Have you ever walked past a really big tree and wondered how old it is? Have you ever sat and counted the rings inside a fallen tree or walked past a gnarled trunk and wondered how old it is? At Sizergh we have a collection of ancient trees across the estate. This exhibition will shine a light on these old favourites and the wildlife that calls them home. Find it in the Great Barn.
