Cedar Tree at Gunby Hall
Cedar Tree at Gunby Hall
Looking west across the large lawn behind the house. The Massingberd family had a great interest in trees, many recorded in the 'Gunby Tree Book', dating from 1670 and preserved in the house. Peregrine and Elizabeth Langton Massingberd were close friends of Sir Joseph Banks (see TF3061 : Revesby Park ), who introduced them to many new species. Peregrine planted thousands of trees on the Gunby estate, including this magnificent cedar of Lebanon dated 1812.
