Linley Beechs

Linley Beechs are an avenue of beech trees on Linley Hill, north of Bishops Castle.

The Linley Beechs avenue is about a mile long and forms part of the Shropshire Way.

At nearly three hundred years old these beech trees are coming to the end of their life cycle. Some have already succumbed and have been replaced for the future with younger trees.

Beech trees are beautiful at all time of the year with their smooth grey bark, tall majestic crown, vivid green new growth of leaves in Spring or bright Autumnal colours.

The Linley Beechs Avenue was planted in the 1740s by Robert More MP who built and lived in Linley Hall.
