Tree Tours and Tall Tales

The varied landscape of Warsash Common is the site of this Saturday's guided tree tour, one of the many Park Events this season organised by Fareham Borough Council in association with Fareham in Bloom volunteers.

The easy and informative 90 minute walk highlights twelve trees native to the common. The Countryside ranger will take you through the commons area of natural woodland and enlighten you with tales of the most interesting trees and the role they have played in local legends, history and culture.

The life of a tree is often intertwined with the lives of people around it, historically serving as places for public meetings or places of worship, providing timbers for local construction and sources of medicinal treatments some even still used in today's modern practices. Speaking about the tree insights tour Executive member for Leisure and Community at Fareham Borough Council, Cllr Connie Hockley, said "this is a great opportunity to explore this protected site at Warsash and reveal its significance as a natural habitat and recognise the history of its hardwood inhabitants"

The walk departs from New Road car park, off Fleet End Road at 10am this Saturday 15th June. Tickets are £3 per person and can be purchased through Fareham Tourist Information Centre.
