Agregated reviews (10) The Ankerwycke yew - Staines

It's amazing to think that this tree has been standing for so long, and long may it stand. Wanted to see it as was in the area already. The sign posting is not that clear so finding it was a challenge. A fellow walker actually guided me to the site. If in the area it's worth seeing. There is a long circular walk as well at the site. National trust have maps they give out.

If you are local and have never been out here then it is something to do on a lovely day for an hour. Bit of a challenge to find and it's not even sign posted off the main road so was just guessing on how to get there. But worth the effort to see a small piece of English history

Walk into the field from the carpark on Magna Carta lane, sticking to the left as you pass into more fields, and you’ll arrive at an old tree-lined driveway. Turn right down this avenue and the yew and Priory are a couple of minutes’ walk.

Worth the trip to see, lovely walking routes around and some great information at the tree. Not more than 10 minutes worth of looking once you get to the tree, but we enjoyed ourselves!

Impressive tree and nice day trip. I don´t think i would come back for a second visit as it wasn´t to much more to do there than the tree and a short walk around.

National Trust has a 1.5mile walk around this ancient landscape. Wear your wellies!
