Source of earliest mention: 1843: J.C.Loudon - Arboretum


J.C.Loudon (1783/1843) described ‘an avenue 414- yards long, consisting of 162 yew trees, which are supposed to be about 200 years old. They average 30 ft. high, with trunks about 2 ft. in diameter at 2 ft. from the ground; and heads about 30 ft. in diameter. Another avenue planted about 160 years ago, and 400 yards long, consists of 120 trees, averaging about 24 ft. high, with trunks about 2 ft. in diameter. The width of both avenues is rather more than 30 ft. There are about 100 more yew trees on the Tytherly estate, but they are of smaller dimensions than those already noticed’.
