Great to see this old beech hedge so well kept. Looks amazing in the autumn with wonderful colours especially at this time of year.

This really is a very big beech hedge, of which the locals are very proud. I would not really recommend it for a visit, although driving past it, it is quite impressive.

I've heard about it several times from friends, even had photos sent to me, but it must be seen to be believed. According to the Guinness book of records it's the tallest Beech in the world!
