History

The large area of mixed woodland on the slopes above Clevedon Court was planted in the early 19th century by Lady and the Reverend Sir Elton. They were keen on evergreens, particularly yew and holm oak, but there are many other species in the woodland. Paths were laid out through the woods, with carefully planned views.
