The fascinating yet tranquil Yew Tree Avenue at Clipsham is over 200 years old, consisting of over 150 clipped Yew Trees in all manner of unusual shapes. Once the carriage driveway to Clipsham Hall, the Avenue, which costs nothing to visit, is now a pleasant place to sit and perhaps enjoy a picnic in the summer.


The interest group has now developed into the Clipsham Yew Tree Avenue Trust (CYTAT) to organize and fund work on improving the health of the trees and get the patterns back before they are lost forever. In the long term we need to establish a solution for the maintenance of Yew Tree Avenue.
