These trees are not just for Christmas!

Clutton Parish Council, using the Ward Councillor’s Initiative grant organised by Jeremy Sparks, has completed the replanting of the 200 year old avenue of trees in Clutton.

The Avenue of Trees

This magnificent avenue, leading from the Upper Bristol Road across the sweeping  parkland setting of fields down to Church Farm and St. Augustine’s Church, has been a well-loved walking route for generations of villagers but in recent years has suffered from the loss of nearly half its mature trees.

Colin Withers, of Church Farm, led the work of the planting and fencing along with parish councillor Vic Adie. They were enthusiastically supported by Aubrey Willcox  and David and Will Withers of  Willow Farm. All gave freely of their time and energy in the task which spread over a period of two weeks.

In the spring the path down the avenue will be renovated with a fresh layer of gravel.

The Avenue should now return to its former glory and give great pleasure to all who walk its length for generations to come.
