An old hawthorn tree and Ashridge Monument
An old hawthorn tree and Ashridge Monument
This ancient meadow is marked on early 19th century maps. and is crossed by a public footpath. When I first visited some 40 years ago there were the remains of a wire fence alongside the footpath and several hawthorn trees. The fence has now been removed but this wizened tree remains. The National Trust Visitors Centre can be seen in the distance.
The Ashridge National Trust Estate :: SP9713
The Ashridge Estate covers a wide area of the Chiltern Hills on the Hertfordshire Buckinghamshire border, which provides open access to large woods and open grassland. There are many footpaths and bridleways - including part of the Ridgeway and wonderful opportunities to observe wild life including deer.
The Estate Office, Visitor Centre and Caf are close to the Bridgewater Monument on Moneybury Hill, above the village of Aldbury.
