Oak Open Days at Atherstone and Thenford House, UK

Event Date: 
Sunday, 17 July 2016 to Monday, 18 July 2016

This year’s UK OOD event commences on Sunday, July 17 with a visit to the young collection of David Gooder at Atherstone near Coventry. David has amassed a most interesting collection from many sources including sponsorship of collectors in the wild, and I hope this will be the first of many visits. The following day, July 18, is a chance not to be missed to visit the important tree collection of Lord Heseltine on the 70-acre estate at Thenford House in Northamptonshire. Rarely open to the public, over 3,500 species have been planted, many collected in the wild, including a notable collection of oaks. In addition to the botanical interest, the estate is exceptionally beautiful, containing three large lakes, many sculptures, and a formal garden. Lord Heseltine will be there to welcome us personally. Please register your interest for either or both days via tours@internationaloaksociety.org.
