Horse chestnut

Aesculus hippocastanum

Information about horse chestnut trees can be found on Wikipedia and from the Woodland Trust.

As you come in to the park, from the entrance on the corner of Avenue Road, this particular Horse chestnut is just off the right hand side of the path.

As you walk into the park from Grange Road and you get level with the small path from the car park, this large Horse chestnut will be on your right, just off the path. On the left if you are walking from the bowling green.

There is a group of trees along the hedge to the car park by the Grange Road entrance. This Horse chestnut is on the left of that group as you look into the car park.

This Horse chestnut is in a group of three large trees about half-way along the path running parallel to Avenue Road. The other two are Oak trees.

Haven’t got a number for this tree but it is unmistakeable. It’s a huge Horse chestnut tree just off the path that runs diagonally across the park. It provides lovely shade in the summer.
