Take the Ice Age Tree Trail

Found in Geraldine Mary Harmsworth Park, beside the Imperial War Museum, the Ice Age Trees project takes visitors on a walk around 34 species of trees, all of which date from the retreat of the ice after the last ice age.

Designed by Trees for Cities, with support from Southwark Borough Council, it dates from 2003 in its present incarnation, though many of the trees are earlier.

  1. The tree in your photograph is not one of the Ice tree Trail trees.
    Please correct this mis-education. While you are about it perhaps you could explain to Rachel Jackson of Southwark Council, that the trees and the park are in her borough.
    Although it probably explains why several of the advertise trees have been removed.
