This week's instalment of the lecture series discusses the fantastic collection of tree species at the Lovell Quinta Arboretum. The Arboretum was created by Sir Bernard Lovell, the founder of Jodrell Bank Radio Telescope and famous for his work on radar during the mid-1950's.


The Arboretum was the culmination of Bernard Lovell's lifetime efforts and contains many plants which he collected in his travels including the Eastern-bloc countries. It includes the National Collections of Pine (Pinus) trees, and of Ash (Fraxinus) trees.

Rod Taylor will be using his expertise to deliver a talk on this particular Arboretum based in the heart of Cheshire.
