Buckingham Tree Walk 1st May 2022

Although the weather was not as kind to us as it might have been, those of us who went on the most recent of the popular tree walks organised by the Buckingham Society and led by Michael Hunt, were rewarded with an interesting and informative two hours. The walk covered the trees in the Heartlands (across from the bridge from Cornwalls Meadow) via the old churchyard, and part of the University of Buckingham campus, ending up in Chandos Park.

It would be fair to say that Michael’s breadth of knowledge outstrips this writer’s capacity to retain more than a tiny portion of the details given to us, but the overpowering impression that does remain is that Buckingham has a wonderful range of trees; something we must ensure remains the case as the town grows. There will be further walks in due course, and everyone is encouraged to join at least one of them when the opportunity presents itself.
