In 2020 we celebrated the 400th Anniversary of the Verney family residing at Claydon.
Over the past 400 years, the Verneys have shaped Claydon Estate’s historic parkland, so we felt it is a fitting tribute to both our ancestors and future generations to plant 400 specimen trees within the stunning landscape we all enjoy and love.
The programme of planting will take around ten years to complete, with the first 70 trees being planted by the end of 2021. We will keep you updated as to our progress!
The Verney family also commissioned Tom Greenly, of Richard Greenly Photography, to produce a photographic record of Claydon Estate in 2020. Many of these beautiful images appear throughout our website…
