#treestory5

November 6, 2017

“(…) the historian reads mankind in cities; the philosopher in the clouds. He” [or she…] “who is anxious for the truth should look abroad on the plains or in the woods, where man’s first prerogative, the giving of names, was exercised.” Interesting excerpt from TRADITIONS OF LANCASHIRE (1872) that takes us back to #treestory4 which brought Newton’s Apple Tree to our attention. Coincidently seeds from the aforementioned tree were sent to Jodrell Bank Observatory… in November 2016. Anyway, back to November 2017 + Boggart Clough Hole  - according to parksandgardens.org “trees near the entrance from Middleton Road were planted by Robert Moffat [pictured], father-in-law of David Livingstone.”
