New Trees at Red House.
This Horse Chestnut is located in the Big Game Field and was donated by Elizabeth Waterman (an ex-pupil of Red House School). It was planted by Oliver (aged 5) and Danielle (aged 4) Holdsworth who live at Red House.
In the mid-nineteenth century many parkland trees were planted about the estate and some of them, particularly the sycamores and beeches are coming to the end of their lifespan. Also, with its extremes of dry and wet, this year has taken its toll on too many of the older ones so this autumn we are planting replacements in various locations.
