Beeston Keep

Location: Cheshire

Region: North West

Grid Ref: SJ537593

Owner / Manager: English Heritage

Access:

Beeston Castle has a number of veteran oaks and walnuts in the woodland running around the castle.  The paths of the woodland walk have been diverted around these old trees to allow them to be seen whilst also giving them a measure of rootzone protection.   There are also some impressive yew trees growing directly on the exposed bedrock in some areas.

      From the description you have given, it sounds like it could be tree no. 13, which is down in the survey as Malus domestica.

      The last tree inspection report lists the tree as Malus domestica variety “Apple”, there are three in that area.
