John Wesley's beech trees, Lambeg, Co. Down
John Wesley's beech trees, Lambeg, Co. Down
These trees stand at the entrance to Chrome Hill, just north of Wolfenden's Bridge on the Lambeg-Ballyskeagh road. During one of his visits to Ireland in the late 18th century, John Wesley stayed at Chrome Hill. He twisted together two beech saplings as a symbol of the friendship of the Methodist Church and the Church of Ireland, and the trees still stand today.
