The Queen's Sycamore


This sycamore was planted by Her Majesty The Queen on the occasion of her visit to view Operation Clean Up on 16th May 1968.

The other sycamores were presented by Sir William Mather to Bredbury & Romily UDC. The triangle of land at the junction of Werneth Low Road and Cowlishaw Road was given to the council by Walter Mansfield.

The site affords wide views across the north and west of Greater Manchester.

  2. Wasn't the tree planted by the queen vandalised and replaced with this one?

    1. I've no idea. It wouldn't surprise me.
