Fawley's special trees

Yew Tree with a girth of 1.8 metres - photo by Hilary Beck-Burridge, project volunteer

Fawley village is tucked away in the Chilterns, not far from Henley and the River Thames. The parish contains many large trees, many of which are on parish or property boundaries.

The trees have been notable for some time and in Parishes: Fawley, A History of the County of Buckingham: Volume 3, which was piublished in 1925, a tree of Fawley is mentioned. It reads:

"At the north-west of the churchyard is a fine yew tree, in the hollow trunk of which twelve persons can take shelter at the same time."

Sadly, this tree no longer exists. Can you remember this tree? Do you have any photos? If so, please get in touch.

There is a beautiful stained glass window in the church called 'Tree of Life'.

For more information on the history of Fawley village go to the Unlocking Buckinghamshire's Past website.

'Autumn leaves' by Ella Ronan

The autumn colours of the Fawley woods inspired a young artist to enter this painting in the 2008 Special Woods Art Competition.
