In 2022 Sue Webber decided to plan a walk a week around a different tree. She researched where to find them, their ecology and their folklore. As an artist she also used them as her muse for a series of work that can be found on her website. Join Sue on this gentle wander through Stansted Estate to listen to the folklore of the trees. Who was the Holly King? Why should we plant Wild Service? How do you read a Beech tree?…..& more
