From 100 to 1,000 explore Dudmaston's trees

26th November 2013

The National Trust’s Dudmaston Estate will be giving their visitors the opportunity to discover everything they would like to know about the sleeping giants living on their estate by joining the Rangers on Winter Tree Walks on Saturday 30 November and Sunday 1 December 2013.

The walks which start from Visitor Reception at midday will give visitors an insight into the type of trees to be found on the estate. For instance, did you know that the property has trees dating from 100’s to 1,000 years old, and that the earliest recorded discovery of the Dawn Redwood in Shropshire was found at Dudmaston? These are just a few of the discoveries to be made and facts to be gathered on these fascinating walks.

Area Ranger, Mike Annis said “Dudmaston has a fascinating history of woodland management, began by Captain Geoffrey Wolryche-Whitmore when he resided in the Hall. We have some fantastic trees which visitors will know very little about and we are keen to try and change this, and give everyone an insight into our wonderful estate.”

Normal admission charges will apply for visitors coming to the property but there will be no additional charge for the walk itself. Visitors who are interested in attending the walk are asked to ensure that they are at Visitor Reception by midday to join the Rangers.
