GREAT TREES OF BRITAIN AND IRELAND by Tony Hall (Kew Publishing £25, 256pp)

If only trees could talk, both the yew and western cedar at Blarney Castle Gardens would have plenty to say. They are each the oldest of their species and hundreds of years old. Our ancient trees have been the silent witnesses to coronations, wars, and the lives of thousands… and you can meet them by simply taking a drive around Britain and Ireland. Some you may even have already seen in the hit TV show Game Of Thrones or in a couple of Harry Potter movies. This engaging book describes 60 different trees, avenues and forests, and provides exact locations, including OS grid reference number, together with fun, interesting facts.
