Great Ayton High Street
Great Ayton High Street
This large cedar tree has dominated the High Street for decades. The tree is in the grounds of Beech Grove, the home of Dr. William Augustus Loy, the village doctor in the late nineteenth century (the surgery being next door). The eastern end of the house (visible in the photo) is dated 1779. The western end is younger, built in the late nineteenth century. Cedar trees originated in the Lebanon and were introduced into this country in the late seventeenth century so this tree is considered to be as old the house.
