Britain's Tree Story, Hardback Book

Britain's Tree Story Hardback

Part of the National Trust History & Heritage series



A lavishly illustrated tribute to Britain's oldest, largest and most famous trees told through legends, history and literature.

Trees have always inspired awe and wonder and some of our ancient trees have been standing for over a thousand years.

In this fascinating and lovingly researched book the author selects the most interesting of them and compares archive photographs and engravings with contemporary colour photographs.

They include the legendary Royal Oak that King Charles I hid in while being chased by Roundhead troops and The Betty Kenny yew tree that is believed to have inspired the nursery rhyme 'Rock a bye baby'.

There is a gazetteer of where to see all the trees, including in various National Trust properties.
