The Daily Mail are clearly fond of their giant hedge stories.
Apparently this one is the biggest yew hedge in Britain (though not the tallest*, as that’s the Cirencester one I already posted about.)
I do like the fact that its location is a “closely guarded secret”. I think I might know where it is, but I suppose it would be inappropriate to speculate.
(For any pedants offended my tabloid-style headline, I should concede that yew clippings don”t “cure cancer”, they are just used in the manufacture of drugs that help to fight cancer.)
*Edit – I originally described this as the tallest hedge in Britain, which is wrong, because the Meikleour hedge (which is beech) is much higher.
