|The Remarkable Trees at Stourhead|
Blackmore Vale and Yeovil NT Association will hold its AGM @ 2.30pm at the Digby Hall, Hound Street, Sherborne. After tea and cake there will be a talk by Emily Utgren (NT Stourhead).
Tree care is core to a lot of the work at Stourhead, ensuring that there are young trees preparing to be magnificent one day. They are currently re-visiting the past to explain why Stourhead was built and how it was conserved since the 1700 to make the estate we see today.
