The Panshanger Oak is England's largest single stemmed oak tree. With a girth of 7.6m it is truly impressive and is believed to have been planted by Queen Elizabeth 1. It sits in a Repton Landscape near Hertford. Lafarge Tarmac have done an extraordinary job of returning this landscape post gravel extraction,back to nature. Many new footpaths have been opened to the public allowing access to this beautiful Mimram valley. A Traditional Cheshire fence with curved top now protects the Panshanger Oak in a subtle but effective manner.
