This remarkable avenue of 150 idiosyncratic yew topiaries can be seen on the estate of Clipsham Hall in Rutland. It was created from 1870 by Amos Alexander, the forester on the estate who lived in the gate lodge and today it is preserved by the Forestry Commission. Within the world of topary I see them as a kind of “outsider art”. The AA on the last picture stands for Amos Alexander.
Well worth diverting a few minutes off the A1 if you happen to be travelling that way.
