Ash Trees of the Folkestone Downs

Discover the fascinating history of ash trees

Ash trees have long played an important role in our lives from the Stone Age to modern day. In Norse mythology it is the tree that represents The Tree of Life, with its tall branches reaching up into the heavens and its vast root system spread deep below the Earth. The ash was the tree said to span the universe, linking worlds. Come along to this free family walk and find out more. Join Paul Holt, ranger for the White Cliffs Countryside Partnership as he leads a walk through the ash trees of the Folkestone Downs. During this walk he will impart his extensive knowledge of the myths and legends of ash trees and we will make our own ash tree myth as we explore the edge of the Downs.
