Discovering trees

One of the activities available in the first half of the First Sunday Thing on 7th June will be a ten minute walk in the churchyard discovering the trees, among them an unusual number of Walnut trees. St Nicolas' churchyard is a wildlife haven well known for its spring flowers, but it would be an interesting copse even if there were no church or graves within it. This Walnut stands near the Vicarage, two very ancient ones look as if they are almost toppling into the moat in the south west coner, and the newest one stands on a mound near the main entrance to the churchyard where it was planted to replace one which fell in the 1990s
