      Hi Karl, this beech can be found on the edge of a quarry at Plas Newydd, a National Trust property close to Llanfairpwllgwyngyll, on the island of Anglesey, Wales. The estate is on the banks of the Menai Strait and has magnificent views across to Snowdonia. It covers 68 hectares of parkland, gardens and woodland and has a number of special trees including this beech. I will endeavour to get the grid reference for you. Happy New Year Kate
