Oak Open Day in Gredington

Event Date: 
Saturday, 11 July 2015 to Sunday, 12 July 2015

This year the IOS is running a reduced tour programme in order not to distract from our triennial Conference event in October based in Illinois, USA, and its associated tours. However, in order to cater for those who will be unable to travel to the USA (and for the many who we hope will attend both events) there will be a two-day Oak Open Day event in the UK in July.

The OOD will commence at 10:30 on Saturday, July 11th at Lloyd Kenyon’s notable collection of oaks (and Viburnums) at Gredington, near Whitchurch, Shropshire, England – the broad location is south of Chester and not far east of the Welsh border. The venue for the second day is planned to be Ness Botanic Gardens.

Lord Kenyon will generously provide a light lunch and tea at Gredington free of charge on the 11th. As usual, transport and accommodation will be left to participants to organise for themselves, but a list of potential accommodation will be sent to those who register. Again as usual, each day will be "stand-alone," that is to say you may register for either or both days.

Registration or enquiries, please, via tours@internationaloaksociety.org
