Yew Tree Avenue (Clipsham)
This is an extraordinary sight not to be missed -700yds of Yew Trees clipped into a miriad of shapes - a parade of animals, chess pieces, a spitfire to name a few, plus a variety of abstract shapes. Turn right out of Beech House and follow the main road for approx 2 miles (until you see the avenue and the car park on the left hand side).
