Meeting the Chatsworth oaks

A visual story of my spring research trip to the old oaks of Chatsworth House in Derbyshire…

very large oak tree with a charcoal drawing of it on an easelI grew up in nearby Matlock and know the estate quite well, but only recently discovered the former hunting park there with its large collection of ancient trees. This is probably one of the biggest, which I decided to try to tackle on my first day there.
