Caversham Court Trees - from Reading Borough Council website

Caversham Court gardens lie within the St. Peter's Church Conservation Area and were originally part of a 12th century priory.

The gardens contain a number of fine tree specimens, particularly this impressive Wellingtonia, which has a girth of almost 6 metres.

There is also a giant Bhutan Pine measuring more than 3 metres round, a cedar of Lebanon, an Atlas cedar and a black mulberry.

Massive yew hedges surrounding the allotment gardens are believed to have been planted in the 17th Century.

An ancient layered yew, a feature popular in the seventeenth century is also found here. A number of trees were created by layering to create a complete ring of 'offspring' around the original tree.
