The lawn at Duryard is a fabulous open space (which can be booked for outdoor events through our online booking system). It also contains a wonderfully eccentric Judas Tree, Cercis siliquastrum, which seems to be growing along the lawn.
The tree was blown over, many years ago, during a storm. It was propped up, about a metre off the ground where is stayed for a while, but eventually came to lay on the ground in its current position.
It is clearly quite happy in its current position, as you can see it is in full leaf.
